Okay, I know National Poetry Month doesn’t begin until Saturday, but my poetry project this year is a two-day process. So I’m sharing what you need if you’re planning to do some digging with me :>)

Will you join in? Would love to see what you come up with!
And that’s how it works! I hope you and/or your students will play with these words and see what happens. And if you want to pick a different topic from the ones I listed, go for it. I’m just providing a possible framework for you to play with!
