Next week we will FINALLY be in the month of April! I cannot wait to say good-bye to March, it's over welcomed it's stay! April of course is Poetry Month! I have spent the last couple of days gathering the resources in my room to prep for the upcoming weeks.
My all time favorite book for poetry is Giant Children by Brod Gagert and Tedd Arnold. You can read about how I used this book earlier in the year HERE.
For example Popcorn by James Stevenson (top right in picture) has a variety of poems that do not rhyme, some are written in different fonts, and all are illustrated.

This is a perfect example of a poem that doesn't rhyme. I am already thinking of some text dependent questions for this specific poem. :) Popcorn also has some examples of shape poems :)
For our poetry unit I am having my students create Poetry Journals. I am using Pinkadot's Student Poetry Journal, which by the way is included an exclusive Educents Poetry Bundle. I can't wait to see the poems my students come up with!
There are ELEVEN INCREDIBLE products in this bundle! Click on the image to check it out!
