Every April, I highlight National Poetry Month and encourage teachers to take full advantage of all of the amazing resources available to you on the Academy of American Poets website, Caution! You can get lost in the good stuff on this site :0)
Of special interest to teachers, check this out: https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/materials-teachers.
Poets.org is also on youtube and twitter. A twitter feature I especially like is the April highlight called Teach this Poem. If you twitter, you can link to a poem and add YOUR great ideas for teaching.
Poetry lives in and emerges from our souls. To me, every month is poetry month, as it is my favorite genre. Each April I am grateful that poets.org encourages everyone to celebrate how poetry touches and enriches our lives.
I hope you will visit and explore this wonderful site!
