Looking for great poetry resources? Be sure to get your hands on this month's Book Links magazine! The issue theme is "Exploring Language Arts," and there's plenty of poetry to be found. My "Voices in My Head" audiobook column features "The Audible Art of Poetry" - you may click & print the article here. Also, in the Web Connections Book Links feature, I include some links for utilizing poetry and learning listening skills in the classroom.
Children's Poetry expect Sylvia Vardell writes a monthly column for Book Links, as well as her amazing blog Poetry for Children. Each month, Sylvia's "Everyday Poetry" column will have an original poem from a well-known children's poet for you to download. Click on this link from Book Links Magazine for this month's printable "There's a Poem in My Pocket" by J. Patrick Lewis. Enjoy!Image from www.ala.org
