Product Description
 Celebrate National Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 27, 2017!

Would you like to give your students an opportunity to experience the simple joy of poetry? If so, here’s your chance! Every year during National Poetry Month, one day is designated Poem in Your Pocket Day. It is a great way to celebrate and share poetry! This year it is April 27th. Of course, you can celebrate a local version of Poem in Your Pocket Day on any day of the year!

All day long, poems will be unfolded and shared in bookstores, parks, schools, cafes, and libraries. You and your students can be a part of it!

It's simple! Students will select a poem they love, carry the poem in their pocket, and share it with everyone they meet!

This freebie includes a student information sheet, two reflections sheets, a poster, and creative suggestions for other ways to share poetry. I've even included a pocket that students can cut out and wear in case they don't have pockets. Just hang a string on it and it's ready to go!

Pair this with a fun Poetry Writing Stations
activity, which includes complete lesson plans, and your students will have their own original poems to share!

Poet James Dickey said this about poetry: "When you really feel it, a new part of you happens, or an old part is renewed, with surprise and delight at being what it is."

Wishing you surprise and delight!
