Greetings, Poetry Lovers! My "I Pause for Poems" National Poetry Month project continues this week...
Each weekday in April, I'm sharing a mini video featuring one of my poems. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, it's poems for kids; on Tuesdays and Thursdays, it's haiku suitable for kids. Thanks so much for joining me!
Today's poem is "Word Wanted" from POEMS ARE TEACHERS - How Studying Poetry Strengthens Writing in All Genres by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater (Heinemann, 2018). This is a terrific resource for the classroom, and Amy is hosting a publisher's giveaway EVERY WEEK this month over at THE POEM FARM. She also hosted this week's "Poetry Friday" - Click here for the Roundup. And be sure to follow her wonderful Poetry Month offerings each day from her writing camper! Here's a link to Amy's YouTube Channel, where you can create poetry with a roll of the dice this month.
To catch up with all my videos so far, or to subscribe, hop on over to my YouTube Channel, too!
Wishing you all the right words today - XO
