Did you know that April was National Poetry Month??? Well, we missed that boat because we were working diligently on our personal narratives and couldn't bring ourselves to put them aside to join in the celebration. Sometimes you just have to move to the beat of your own drum and ours wasn't "beating" poetry last month. However, this month our focus will be on Poetry. All month long we will be reading and writing poetry. The first blog our teacher fell head over heals for was The Poem Farm, written by the talented Amy Ludwig Vanderwater. She writes the BEST poetry for kids EVER! We will visit her blog a lot and will also grab some of the great ideas shared on the Wonderopolis blog. We will be participating in a Poetry Writing Challenge for the entire month and will wrap up our hard work with a Poetry Slam for our friends and family. Tomorrow we will make our Poetry Journals and begin our adventure. Stay tuned...we plan on posting a poem a day for you..written and read by various second grade poets!
