April is National Poetry Month and April 27th is Poem in Your Pocket Day. There are so many fun things to do this month and so little time! Here is an idea to get kids reading and sharing poetry:
Create a Poem in Your Pocket bulletin board display the free template included in this resource.
It’s pretty easy…..First, have students decorate a “pocket”. Staple the pocket to the bulletin board. Give them a few days or longer to find a poem that they love. Bring in a copy (they could copy it by hand) and place it in their pocket. Throughout the month classmates can read each other’s chosen poem.
Students could also write their own poems, too!
