It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I really love poetry! There are so many cool ways to incorporate poetry in the classroom both during National Poetry Month in April, and all year long. The attached resources provide ideas for lessons to teach different kinds of poems, and create different projects surrounding poetry. One resource in particular has activities that are based on using the poetry of Shel Silverstein to teach, which sounds especially fun to me! One of my favorite ideas is using the words on the spines of books to create short poems, I also love the poem in your pocket idea that is pictured above! Check these out!
