Poetry Month is coming up in less than a week, making this a perfect time to prep. Did you know that ReadWorks offers a bunch of poems you can read aloud or listen to at their website? It's a free site we use in our homeschooling that I highly recommend. You can find loads of poems all across the Internet too, of course.
It's also National Poetry Writing Month, or NaPoWriMo, one of my favorite monthly challenges! You can participate by writing a simple poem each month or even by doing all kinds of weird poetry challenges with word banks, contests at AllPoetry.com and other ideas to keep it interesting. If you search for poetry challenges you'll find so many ideas! A search for poetry prompts works, too.
How will you be celebrating the month? Tell us in the chat!
