Rob Kimbro, a theatre director and educator, is co-teaching with WITS writer Kiki Przewlocki a class of entering 3rd graders at the Creative Writing Camp this summer and shared this about his first day:

Writer John Looking for Inspiration

The 3rd grade class at Travis Elementary got off to a great start with a game of Everybody Who…  This game is similar to Musical Chairs.  The person without a chair has to share something true about themselves, and everybody else for whom that thing is true has to get up a find a new chair.  When the chaos dies down, a new person is left in the middle. That person shares a true thing about themselves, and we’re off again.  After learning a lot about each other, we wrote poems based on what we’d shared.  Here’s a collage poem made of lines from each of the young writers.
