Super Secret Poetry Project

I have been working on my plans for National Poetry Month for a while now. Yes, I know it's not until April, but with only 41 days left, that time will be gone in a flash. This has been my super secret project and I am thrilled that it's coming together so nicely.

Last year I wrote a series of posts called Poetry in the Classroom in which I highlighted a book or related set of poetry books and offered suggestions on how they might be used in the classroom. This year ... well you'll just have to wait and see.

I can tell you this—while working on this project I have learned that authors of books for kids are truly the kindest most generous people on the planet.


  1. I had not even thought about National Poetry Month until this post and now I can't wait!

  2. Hi Tricia,

    I like reading your blog and at first I was marvelled to see such a blog. You have a gift of writing, keep up the good work. I'll be back soon to read more.


  3. Looking forward to your secret being revealed....

  4. This is very exciting! Yet another reason to look forward to April...

    We are planning a big Poetry in Your Pocket day at my school, with a guest author/poet in residence! I love April.
