It is April! Which means three things: Tax Day, My Birthday month, and POETRY month. Poetry is a make or break with my most kids. Many students enjoy writing poetry, but they are unsure of the technical side. When I start saying words like theme, mood, stanzas--their little smiles fade away. Of course what do I do? I bring in my favorite POETRY picture books. We analyze FUN poetry before we have to start looking at well.....boring poetry. #hadtosayit! #sorry
Here is a FREE list of all my favorite poetry books to use in the classroom. My affiliate links are provided because well I have a horrible (AWESOME) habit of buying books. THANK YOU!
Share with me how do you teach poetry in your classroom?
