April 1st, National Poetry Month Begins

I love National Poetry Month. Monday through Friday throughout April, I share a poem by email to every student and every staff member at Patrick Taylor. I have done it for the last two or three years. I can't remember exactly. I don't think teens read enough poetry, so this is a chance to spread the word. I get my poems from a variety of places.
Here are some links to help you celebrate poetry during April:
Poetry 180: A poem a day for American High School Students
Poems for Teens provided by poets.org
Celebrate Poetry Month 30 different ways from poets.org
Children's Poet Laureate, Mary Ann Hoberman, shares some of her poems on video
Scholastic has some fun poetry resources for teachers to use in the classroom
