Windshield Poetry Brings Smiles

by Adrian, Alondra and Jason

English Tutoring Project students are writing creative windshield poetry. The poetry is about topics such as spring, valentines and love, Christmas, and wishing people a good day. The poetry is for the citizens outside of St. Stephen Protomartyr School.

Students write poetry during ETP class as they learn English at the same time. When the weather is sunny, they deliver poems and put them on parked cars. They slide them under windshield wipers.

Students in ETP want to make people’s day shine by sharing amazing windshield poetry. 🙂 People who have received a poem said that “it made their day!!” One lady sent a thank you card from Tennessee. She found a valentine poem on her windshield after her father-in-law’s funeral and it made her smile joyfully.

The tutor of the ETP students heard of windshield poetry from a news story on television. She thought it would be a great way to “make a difference” and learn English, too!
