April in the United States is National Poetry Month– for wonderful resources, see the Edublogger post April is Poetry Month. Many participate this month in NaPoWriMo – write a poem a day for the month of April, which I’ve been doing here on this blog. National Poetry Month is sponsored by Poets.org and is the inspiration for all the poetry sharing in April.
April 29th — today— is Poem in Your Pocket Day !
What poem will you carry?
Who knows! Perhaps you’ll carry one of your own poems in your pocket! Read more about Poem in your Pocket Day here. It’s sponsored by Poets.org. Here’s a sample of four poems I would carry in my pocket when I was a teacher. My students would choose their own favorite poems and carry extras in their pocket as well, in case a person at school needed one of their own!
What poem will carry in your pocket today?
Here’s what’s in my pocket today— I keep it handy for each year:
