April is National Poetry Month! The library will host a "poet-tree" and celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day. In addition, there will be books and displays for students to interact with. If you would like to spread the poetry love, visit Poets.org for classroom resources. Teach This Poem is another great resource (via Kathy Moore's newsletter) that creates a text-set around a poem with step by step lessons on how to teach it. Music is poetry, which is a great buy-in for students...here is a Music as Poetry Blogspot that has some great resources!
