Welcome slicers. Reflecting on Poetry Friday and thinking about National Poetry Month.
It was quite a day on Friday over at my school blog, Check It Out. I featured a poem by the Children’s Poetry Laureate, J. Patrick Lewis. He loves to write funny and fun poems however, yesterday we got a glimpse at another side of Lewis.
I also had the pleasure of serving as the host of Poetry Friday, a community of bloggers who celebrate poetry every week. What’s fun is to find other slicers sharing poetry. I usually host once or twice a year. It’s a fabulous community to belong to.
This April, everyday will be Poetry Friday at Check It Out as I will feature the poetry of students. They have worked diligently on their poems. I finished accumulating the poems to send for potential publication in the Young Poets’ Digest.
There’s still time to sign to sign up for a Poetry Postcard HERE.
