Welcome, awe-inspiring April! You are my favorite month and here’s why:
- Despite severe winter fatigue this year, we keep the faith that spring will appear!
- Your showers bring May flowers.
- You are National Poetry Month.
You don’t have to be a poetry super-fan like me or teach language arts to engage poetry in your classroom instruction. Poetry has the power to connect all of us - students and teachers alike - quickly and deeply. In celebration of April, surviving winter to welcoming spring, please allow me to offer some of National Poetry Month’s highlights from former 6th graders and me.
