The 60-60-60 Challenge: Day Seven
Welcome to Day Seven of the 60-60-60 Challenge to support America SCORES Seattle and celebrate National Poetry Month!
As promised, below are some poems and resources to help you reach your goal to give your Full 180 to America SCORES Seattle by taking the 60-60-60 Challenge to read 60 poems for National Poetry Month, to walk 60 miles for yourself, and to raise 60 dollars for America SCORES Seattle!
Today’s poems were written during the 2011 Spring Season by SCORES poet-athlete Jasmine N. at Bailey Gatzert Elementary School:
I am a girl
who plays soccer
sometimes girly, smart and funny
I am a young
lady becoming a woman
will be successful and be a wonderful mother.
are so sweet and beautiful
like cotton candy
It can be
different colors with a green stem
spring time it blooms so beautiful
It makes me
jump with joy and brightness
comes I don’t jump with joy or brightness
its new life again
Today's video is from Maple Elementary SCORES poet -athlete Jazel A. who recites her original poem "Best Friend"
