Did you know that April is National Poetry Month?

This annual celebration was founded in 1996 to highlight the legacy and continued achievement of American poets, while also promoting the reading, writing, and studying of poetry. Today, National Poetry Month has grown to be the world’s largest literary celebration. National Poetry Month can be a great opportunity for your students to use their language skills and connect with a national community through various activities.

For a look at ongoing programs and ways to get your classroom involved, check out the National Poetry Month website.
