April is National Poetry Month
We will be celebrating in the Library with a variety of interactive displays as well as books of poetry, novels in verse, and biographies of some major poets. Enjoy!
Teachers, check out these resources:
The National Poetry Month website from the Academy of American Poets has some great ideas to use in your classrooms. In particular, take a look at their “30 Ways to Celebrate” page for some lesson ideas, videos, and other helpful resources!
Poetry Class is a U.K.-based site which offers a wide array of creative lesson ideas for all ages. Some really neat stuff here from “across the pond”.
Creative Writing Now offers a wide range of poem starters and ideas for poetry inspiration. Check them out here.
