"First Practice" by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater

Here is a "poem movie" for Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's poem, "First Practice," created by graduate student Sabrina Ramirez. Watch it here.

This poem is featured in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School in the sixth grade section, week 14, for the theme, "Community."


  1. After I read Ellen's I had to go back and see if there were more. Know my soccer loving students will especially love this one!

  2. I like the subtly expressive reading--especially the lines "I'm tough" and "I'm good at this game"!

  3. Thank you for making this video to go along with my poem. It was neat to see the images it brought up for you, and I too enjoyed your reading!
