As we make our way into the back-to-school season, there is still time to prepare students for the start of the school year. If you are working with student readers this summer, you might have new challenges than in years past. This past year and a half has presented obstacles for students, teachers, and families working with young readers.

We celebrate National Poetry Month every year in April. This is a time to bring words to life through special experiences, projects, and celebrations with your students and school community. I love using art, writing, music, acting, and more to teach children about poetry and inspire them to be poets, too. I also love to think of ways to tie different subjects such as science, math, and history into Poetry Month and poetic opportunities throughout the year.
