Let's Celebrate Poem In Your Pocket Day Today Around The World With Flipgrid, Buncee, Mrs. P and AWESOME Poetry!

One of the best days during Poetry Month every April is the day we celebrate Poem In Your Pocket Day.  

This is the day that everyone keeps a poem in their pocket and pulls it out throughout the day to read and share with others.  The poem can be an original poem, favorite poem or any other poem each person picks.  

Poem In Your Pocket Day is a day to not only celebrate poetry, but a day to celebrate bringing together everyone in your community to create, read and share something meaningful and fun.  
This year as we get ready to celebrate with several classrooms around the world and our friend Mrs. P, Andy Plemmons and I thought it would be exciting to create a Flipgrid so we could share the poems in our pockets with others around the world.  

We will be sharing a Google Hangout link soon so all of you can join our celebration with Mrs. P!  
You will find the Let's Share The Poems In Our Pockets Flipgrid here

I also wanted to share the link for Poem In Your Pocket Day from the Academy of American Poets.  
They have even provided a guide on the site is filled with ideas, resources and poems to use on this wonderful day. 
One of my favorite places to create poetry is in Buncee and it is the perfect place to write and illustrate the poems for our pockets too.  You will find lots of ideas in this Buncee.

You can go to to have your students create their very own Poem In Your Pocket Buncee's for the day.  It would even be fun to print these off and they can show them while recording in Flipgrid too.
Also, if you are looking for some awesome poetry books, check out this amazing Titlewave List from Follett.  When I saw this today, I just had to share it.  

We hope you join us friends as poems from pockets are being shared around the world next week.  Let's see how many we can add to our Flipgrid for this very special poetry celebration.
