Looking for Virtual Participants for Poem in Your Pocket Day- April 17

April 17th is POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY. The idea is simple: have your students select a poem they love during National Poetry Month then carry it with them to share with other students on April 17.
We are looking for classrooms to SKYPE with our school for our Poem in Your Pocket Day event! We are hoping that other schools will videoconference with us throughout the day to share poetry via skype! Interested in joining us? Leave a message here!!

Curriculum for a schoolwide celebration of poetry is available at More poetry curriculum is available at


  1. What a great idea! We've been working on some plans so we'd love to participate!

    Let me check with some teachers on Monday and see if that will work for them.

    What exactly would you like to do for this collaboration?
