Poetry at LIS: Production & Performance

Poetry is meant to be enjoyed, to be tasted, to be worn, to be swum through. As you may have noticed, Ms. Sonia (with some help from Ms. Chloe, Ms. Katy & Mr. Manuel) has put together quite an amazing poetry exhibition.  This year’s theme is “Journeys”.  Come by the library to write your own poem on our magnetic poetry board, share your poetic images and “Like!” your favorite poem.

Along with the physical LIS Poetry Exhibition, our Performance Poetry page will host recordings of poetry performances by LIS students, as well as point you towards other powerful performances of poetry.  You can hear the poetic stylings of Odila & Sergio as well as Suelvia, Marcelo and Carolina.  These two groups of students have interpreted Lewis Carroll’s The Jabberwocky in a refreshing (and sometimes scary!) new way.

You can also enjoy the poetry performances em Portugues de Ano 7! Check out their video recordings below.

Want to Participate?

  • Record yourself performing a piece of poetry and share the audio/video file with Ms. Katy.  She’ll add it to the Performance Poetry page.
