I like challenging myself and my students with their writing. So… in honor of National Poetry Month, I thought about creating a week-long poetry challenge since I’d like to create more poetry of my own to share with my students during minilesson demonstrations. Hence…
A One Week Poetry Challenge

I was thinking about starting this Challenge on Saturday, 4/12 and ending it on Saturday, 4/19. 8 days, 8 poems. Are you in? If so, please leave a comment. (I’ll post some charges/poetry writing ideas each day in case you’d like the inspiration… However, you can/should write in any poetic format you’d like. Finally, I will use Mr. Linky each day of the Challenge so you may view other people’s poetry writing.)

  1. A challenge…OK. I’ll do it! We like writing poems together in class and I need to get them to finish a few to enter in our boards “Poetry is You” contest. The deadline is coming up.


  2. I’d like to give this a try, too. I know that as a writing teacher I should be writing more. I also know that it is difficult to find poetry at the levels of some of my beginning readers, so maybe I should just write some of my own!


  3. oh…and please tell me how you made your logo for the challenge. I really want to make a logo for my Resource Monday entries and Listy Sunday entries….thanks in advance!


  4. I am in…I LOVE writing poetry! I have 2 notebooks that I just write poetry in but I haven’t written since I written faithfully since I started grad school a year ago…and this will get me back into it! ~ Thanks for the challenge…
    I did post one of my original poems last Friday…it is about my Lighthouse adventure that I went on over my my spring break…


  5. I am in…. this will be a challenge- My hey! That’s my OLW- so here we go! Jen

    I think that I will also do this with my treasures. Perfect for our unit right now.


  6. I’m in. I’m doing the PAD challenge at Writer’s Digest…but would love to add another challenge to my poetry month agenda. I look forward to seeing your prompts. (PS… I have a poetry submission challenge going for April too.)
