Poem in Your Pocket Day April 17th

Woo or Woe on the Go!

April is National Poetry Month.  We’ve already had our annual Poetry Festival Week but want to continue the celebration of poetry when I return to school next week. 

Poets.org has some suggestions for celebrating this month that will be easy to incorporate (we LMSs have limited time so ALWAYS appreciate simple ways to promote our program).

This site also provides a way to access thousands of poems from your cell phone.  What a perfect way to promote Poem in Your Pocket Day!

    Our school recently went all out for Pi Day. I just proposed our ELA teachers do something similar and create a Poetry Day with all kinds of activities centered around poetry. Thanks.
