It's That Time Again.....Time To Celebrate Poetry Month With Our Students & Friends!

With Poetry Month in April, it is always so much fun to connect with others throughout the month through Skype, GHO, and lots of other ways.

We have celebrated with other libraries, classrooms and schools by reading poetry, bringing in special poetry guests, and creating and sharing poetry together online using digital tools such as Padlet and FlipGrid.  

Let’s use this Google Doc as a way to make connections and share how we are going to be celebrating Poetry Month within our libraries and schools.   It is easy….Just add your name, contact information, and ideas below.  Then look for others to collaborate and connect with.   It is a great time to make new friends and create wonderful learning experiences for your students.

Also, if you are looking for a poet or author to connect with for Poetry Month, make sure you check out Skype in the Classroom new Literacy page for connecting with authors, poets, illustrators and others.  They have put together an amazing way to now find and schedule these very special guests.

One more thing…. Poem in Your Pocket Day is a fun way to celebrate Poetry Month.  This year it will be celebrated on April 30.  You can find information and resources on the website.
I have put together the Poetry Symbaloo of fun poetry websites and resources. I love using this throughout the month and year.

Have fun and remember….Poetry can be celebrated anytime!  Let’s make April one of those times together.
