Beside the waterfall, by the lichen face of rock, you pause in pine shade to remember blue for drawing back, and green for trust, replenishing yourself among familiar leaves with scattered sunlight. And beyond those trees in time not ours, you see our children search
Annie talks with middle-school poets and teacher Caroline Patterson about isolation: bullying, feeling left out, being the target of ridicule. And the students read poems they wrote about their feelings.
"The Pea Green Boat" provides a unique and nurturing place to hear stories about how it feels to be excluded, mocked, and bullied because you’re different, in color or ability – or how it feels to be accepted despite those differences. This week, Annie facilitates conversations with middle-school students and a teacher, Caroline Patterson, about isolation. Students write poetry about their feelings during this classroom session and then read their poems.
