I am having such a fun time in our library and really love seeing what everyone has going on in their library, school, and community too.
National Poetry Week.
When I saw the beautiful poster for this year created by Chip Kidd inside of the envelope last week, I also knew that this meant this wonderful celebration in April would be here before we knew it.
We also celebrate Poem In Your Pocket on that day....and throughout the week too so everyone can participate. This year it will be on April 24th.
And it is never too early to start planning.....So let's start connecting and planning some fun!
Let's Connect During Poetry Month Google Document that we can all use to start this collaboration.
Please read the top of the document and add your information. Then just started connecting and making plans.
On the Poets.org website from The Academy of American Poets there are lots of amazing resources for Poetry Month, Poem In Your Pocket, and all things to do with poetry.
There is even a link at the top "For Educators" that will take us to beautiful projects and ideas like the one above.
They have definitely included something for everyone on the website.
Also, follow the Academy on Twitter at @POETSorg and
