April is….(drum roll)

Poetry Rocks!!!

What’s so great about April?  No….it’s not the verse, “April showers bring May flowers”.  Blah!  Although, that little verse does rhyme, which kind of goes with what I was going to tell you.  April is NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!  Woohoo!!  I looooovvvveeeee♥ poetry. I know, I know.  I hear you saying, “Well duh, Ms. B!  You love anything that has to do with English and language arts!”  Of course, many of you also know this because you had me in 6th grade, and we had our “Poetry Cafe”.  Anyway, I digress (check out that word if you don’t know it).  Now that we are done with testing in reading and language arts, we will dive into our artist side next week; in the meantime, try adding your own words to LitWorld’s Global Poem for Change.  It’s really simple, and you only need a few words to make yourself heard. 🙂

P.S.  Here are a few links of poetry websites to explore the different poems and learn about the different poets.


About Ms. Burroughs

I teach 7th grade language arts at Edwards Middle School. I love anything to do with technology and using it in reading and writing. Learning shouldn't have to be boring nor should the job of teaching. "To me, education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul." ~ Muriel Spark
