It’s April, National Poetry Month. It’s the time to explore different kinds of poetry, read the works of many different poets, and use poetry across the curriculum. This site is valuable for both students and teachers because links to many sites for finding and writing poetry are gathered in one place. Students can find out about dozens of poetry forms with examples of each one. They'll also enjoy the humor and craft of poets Shel Silverstein, Ken Nesbitt, and Jack Prelutsky. Teachers will find many resources that emphasize cross-curricular activities.
