Thank you to all of you who stopped by during March to celebrate my launch of? A Rock Can Be…, my third and final Can Be… book with Millbrook Press! I had fun looking for rocks to fit your donated words, especially when I was traveling in Scotland and Ireland. So many amazing rocks…sigh… If you aren’t all rocked out, you can learn more about my book on my website, and if you want to review all the Rock the Blog images, click here.
And, whew! Without a moment to catch my breath, it’s time for National Poetry Month–hooray! However, I have not worked in advance, because I had a book launch, two weeks out of the country, and now our younger daughter Maddie is back home from her six months overseas. To say it’s been a busy month doesn’t begin to cover it:>)
Anyway, here’s my plan. I hope to share one quick tip about presenting poetry to students each day during month. I’ll also share a poem that I think goes well with that tip.
As I said, it’s a plan. I’ll be doing about 30 in-person events in April, plus a number of Skypes. So, if I am not able to keep on top of this, it can always? extend into May. We’ll see what happens!
Meanwhile, here are 30 Ways to Celebrate National Poetry Month from poets.org.
