Celebrate National Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 30, 2020!

Give your students an opportunity to experience the simple joy of poetry by celebrating National Poem in Your Pocket Day. Every year during National Poetry Month, one day is designated Poem in Your Pocket Day. It is a great way to share the beauty of poetry.

Best yet, it's very simple to implement and you won't have any grading to do. All you will do is celebrate poems! This year, Poem in Your Pocket Day is April 30, 2020. Of course, you can celebrate your own personal 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!
