International Poetry Month!

Whether it be a sonnet or a cinquain, we encourage students to share their literary work and discuss it with one another. Students can use this project to develop their poetry knowledge and writing skills by sharing and discussing poems they have written, narrated and/or illustrated (optional) in an online Poetry Month community.
