Poem In Your Pocket Day!
April is national poetry month! Let's celebrate with a poem in your pocket on April 18th. My students and I are busy creating gigantic pockets for every language arts classroom. We are going to to stuff the pockets with favorite poems. The students loved going through the poetry books and picking out great poems to use. They chose poems by Langston Hughes, Gary Soto, Shel Silverstein, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Edna St. Vincent Millay just to name a few. We are also going to give every teacher on campus a poem pertaining their interests or subject they teach along with some sweets! Our language arts teachers are excited to get their pockets and share great poems with the students. For extra information and poems ready to print check out http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/406
