It’s time to find your favorite poem and tell everyone why you love it. Thursday April 18th is Poem in Your Pocket Day. The celebration is simple: all you have to do is choose a poem or compose your own original work and carry it in your pocket all day, sharing the poem and the fun of National Poetry Month wherever you go.
If students want to write their own poetry, try our list of 30 Poems You Can Write for National Poetry Month. Visit the ReadWriteThink.org calendar entry on Poem in Your Pocket Day for additional resources. And if you want even more to choose from, the National Council of Teachers of English has a page full of books, lesson plans, and other great ideas!
