We stretched Poem in Your Pocket Day out over a week so more students could read with each other. Many of my classes have had the chance to share poetry with students around the country. We connected with schools in Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, Maryland and Connecticut. We have read poems individually from our pockets, we've read together as a class and we have even read some poems back and forth with other classes. Joyful Noise was a great way for us to connect. Instead of two voices, we had about 40. Another great experience was when one class read the book Chicken Soup with Rice for us. Fun times. I love poetry month! Have you done anything fun for Poetry Month?
