There's a great post here (http://community.thinkfinity.org/groups/literacy/blog/2011/03/31/write-a-poem-a-day-for-national-poetry-month) about writing a different type of poem each day. Good luck!
Today is carry a Poem in your Pocket Day ~ the idea is to tuck a favorite poem in your pocket to share with others in your class or workplace. EDSITEment has several lessons to tap into for suggestions:
by Langston Hughes (America’s favorite poet!)
By Robert Frost
By Walt Whitman
For National Poetry Month EDSITEment has strung a garland of resources for students of all ages “to make poetry a more important part of the school curriculum and bring poets and poetry to the public in immediate and innovative ways.”
