I love finding poetry "in the wild."

Yes, it's so much fun! I liked the poetry in the subways some years back, too.

This is great! Thank you for telling us about Library Way. I want to go there! You and Tabatha have extended our horizons today by showing us locations we may not be able to access easily.

My brother has sent me some of those quotes (he lives in NYC). Someday I want to see them for myself!!

In case you didn't make it back to my PF post for the answer to your question in the comments -- Yes, I'm 5th grade this year. Fifth grade language arts. We switch classes in 5th at our building, so I have one group for 2 hours in the morning and another group for 2 hours in the afternoon. Reading, writing, and word study. It's one kind of heaven!

Joyce, you are welcome. I'm always interested in the intersection of words and geography!

Mary Lee, yes, it's lots of fun to read the sidewalk! Literature in unexpected places... Your new gig sounds really good. I bet the kids are reading all sorts of good books. The reading workshop approach really worked for Jacob in fourth and fifth grades; he read a lot of books in school during those years.
