National Poetry Month: Poems, Bios & More

April is National Poetry Month. Find everything you need to celebrate poetry in your classroom, including a new activity for each day, this year’s poster plus archives of previous posters, and teacher resources that help add poetry to the classroom all year long. This site, from the Academy of American Poets, has so much to offer that you can spend a long time perusing all the links. The section for educators has lots of ideas, including “Great Poems to Teach.” Plan a Poetry Read-a-Thon, find poems, and be sure to carry a poem in your pocket on April 26.
