Gearing up for April
So in a few weeks it will be April and that's poetry month! Check out this post I wrote last year to find some great poetry resources:
April is Poetry Month! As an English teacher this is one of my favorite months of the year. Oh, and it’s my birthday month too! Double Win! To kick off the month I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite poetry resources and a few ideas that you may be able to use in your classroom!
First, here are some amazing websites that are great for teachers and students alike.
1. The Poetry Foundation This website is simply put, awesome! They have an extensive collection of classic and modern poetry. You can search by topic, by literary device, or author. They also have audio files to listen to as well as teacher resources. This is definitely a resource that is useful for teachers of all subject matter. You can find poems that relate to a theme or topic from your class whether it is science, social studies, or even math!
