Poetry Out Loud

Inspired by the Academy of American Poets’ “Dear Poet” project, my students and I took a chance by reading and recording our own work to celebrate the last day of National Poetry Month.  It was a wonderful way to share all of our hard work.

Poetry Slam

Hi folks!  Today, we’re going to enjoy good food and good company as we share each other’s work.  Some of you will be recorded and preserved on our blog as a way to commemorate this year’s National Poetry Month.

I will also be congratulating those of you who accomplished the large task of writing a poem a day (30 poems!) for this month’s NaPoWriMo.  A big shout-out goes to:
