Poem in Your Pocket Day

April 25, 2019 0 comments

April is poetry month, and today, April 25th, is Poem in Your Pocket Day! How will you celebrate?

We have a few ideas for you...

We also have some books you can use to share poetry with your class.

Published in 2017, Keep a Pocket in Your Poem: Classic Poems and Playful Parodies, written and selected by J. Patrick Lewis, pairs classic poems with newly written parodies, and would be great for the classroom. Build confidence and writing skill with A Poem in Your Pocket by Margaret McNamara, the story of a girl who is nervous about meeting a real poet in school. Finally, Pocket Poems and More Pocket Poems both selected by Bobbi Katz, offer plenty of great choices for memorizing, reading aloud, or just reading!
