Create a "poetree" by cutting a tree trunk shape and branches from brown paper and attaching them to a bulletin board. Or anchor a fallen tree branch in a container filled with stones or plaster for a unique 3-D display. Students can help decorate the tree with thematic or seasonal poems they've found or written. Poems can changed on a weekly or monthly basis. Decorations, such as leaves, , blossoms, snowflakes, hearts, and furit, can be attached to the tree to enhance the display throughout the year. This is also a good way to highlight the poems of a favorite author.
