Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I don’t know about you, but I was totally overwhelmed (in a good way, but still) by all the poetry shared during Poetry Month. I so need to go back and catch up on some folks very interesting projects. If you’re feeling the same way, I encourage you to choose one of the below options and read a single poem! (If you feel like it, leave a Comment about what you read and/or recommend!)
Visit my Pinterest board of my #wonderbreak poems.
Wander over to Irene Latham’s Live Your Poem blog and check out the final version of the kidlitosphere’s progressive poem, “The Secret Inside the Book.”
Check out Jama Kim Rattigan’s listing of a TON of National Poetry Month projects at Alphabet Soup. Pick one that sounds good and see what you find.
I wrote poetry this past week with kindergarten teachers and also 5th graders. Hope to have poems to share from those events next week.
For more poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with the awesome Tara Reid at A Teaching Life.

I know! April was a stuffed full of poetry month!
I tried to visit as many as I could, but it was a lot! All beautiful, always pleasing, like your “wonders”, Laura. Happy May!
Jane the Raincity Librarian says
Yes – I’m still catching up on all the poetry goodness, too! It’s nicer this way, though – I get to stretch the month out, and let it linger a while, and keep filling my life with poetry. 🙂

April was brimming over with poetry. I’m glad it’s spilling over into May for many, too.

It really needs to be more than a month, right? We have April vacation in the middle so I miss out on so many teaching opportunities!
I really like the idea of creating a Pinterest board of poems.
Linda Mitchell says
What a great idea to collect your poems on a pinterest board. I may have to borrow that one. Beautiful offerings and yes, it was a great month. Overwhelming in all the good ways.
Laura, April was a whirlwind of poetry so your suggestion is a welcomed one. A new snag in life will keep me busy amidst poetry reading (if I can get to this relaxing task). My husband was diagnosed with shingles today. Is it bad timing or God’s message to slow down? If the baby comes soon, he will not be able to see her at birth. Life is a bit topsy turvy tonight but there has to be a plan in the works. We just haven’t see that yet. Off to read the Progressive Poem with is title.
Oh, I’m sorry to hear that, Carol! And I hear that is painful. Hopefully all will work out–I know it’s an anxious time!
