Be sure to have a poem you love inside of your pocket this-coming Thursday, April 29th, 2010 since that’s Poem in Your Pocket Day. This day is such a big deal in New York City that the City Government created an entire website for their 8th Annual Celebration of Poem in Your Pocket Day. The website contains a teacher’s curriculum guide to help educators get ready for this big day.
Even if you’re not in New York City, you can make Poem in Your Pocket Day happen in your school or classroom. There are many online resources that can help you get your students ready for this special day. I’ve blogged about it before too (click here or here for older posts about Poem in Your Pocket Day).
What poem will be in your pocket this-coming Thursday?
