National Poetry Month is celebrated throughout North America during the month of April every year. Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, this year is Poetry Month’s 16th birthday!
Visit Scholastic’s “Poetry Idea Engine” where you can create haiku, limericks, free verse and cinquain poetry.
This week, division 1 will continue their genre studies by looking at Poetry. Each student will borrow a book of poems, and will choose his/her favourite to share with the class.
