April is National Poetry Month!

May 5, 2016 at 1:12 pm Leave a comment

For National Poetry Month, we asked kids to compose a “concrete poem” for our blog. Concrete poems are poems that can be written in any shape. The words inside the shape do not have to rhyme. We asked kids to draw a shape and fill it in with words related to the shape they drew. We also encouraged kids to share a favorite poem or to make up one of their own. Check out the fabulous concrete poems submitted two students — great job, guys, and we included some of our staff’s favorite poems.  What is your favorite poem?
