April is Poetry Month!
2014 marks the 16th annual celebration of poetry in Canada. It was established in Canada in April 1998 by the League of Canadian Poets. "National Poetry Month brings together schools, publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, and poets from across the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in Canada’s culture." (poets.ca)
This years theme is "Poetry City"
How will you promote Poetry Month? Here are some display ideas to engage students and excite them about poetry.
Students can copy out a favorite poem to add to the display; or better yet, write their own!
