National Poetry Month

Posted on March 29, 2015 at 6:27 PM
Dear students, parents, and teachers,

State testing is over (for now). I'm enjoying a well-deserved break, and I trust you all are too.

April is National Poetry Month. Scholastic has great poetry activity ideas for teachers. www.scholastic.com/teachers/unit/poetry-month-everything-you-need

Also, go to my poetry page (Scrumptious Poetry) and check out my free poetry resources, plus I have similar resources for sale in my TPT store: www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Elsa-Pla

The National Poetry Month website has celebration suggestions and cool posters: http://www.poets.org/national-poetry-month/poster-gallery

Here's the poem on this year's poster:

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

It reminds me of the poem "How to Eat a Poem" by Eve Merriam:

Don't be polite.  
Bite in.  
Pick it up with your fingers and lick the juice that  
May run down your chin.  
It is ready and ripe now, whenever you are.  

You do not need a knife or fork or spoon  
or plate or napkin or tablecloth.  

For there is no core  
or stem  
or rind  
or pit  
or seed  
or skin  
to throw away. 

April is the perfect month to write some scrumptious poetry. I know I will!

Happy writing,

Write Cook
