Celebrating National Poetry Month

Lots of people will be highlighting poetry in April since it is National Poetry Month. Over at a wrung sponge you can read about the ways folks in the kidlitosphere will be celebrating.

Here at The Miss Rumphius Effect I will be highlighting a poetry book a day and suggesting ways to use these books in instruction. I will also be suggesting companion books, web sites and activities to accompany the reading of selected poems from the books. I hope you will join me in exploring poetry for instruction and will consider suggesting your own ideas for sharing poetry with kids.

If you're looking for resources to use in teaching poetry, check out this post by Elaine at Wild Rose Reader.
