Whether it be a sonnet or a cinquain, we encourage students to share their literary work and discuss it with one another. Students 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.

Activity 1: Participants Take a Poetry Survey April 1-7
Activity 2: Participants Select a Poem Type April 1-14
Activity 3: Participants Create a Google Webpage and Write a Poem April 7-21
Activity 4: Participants Share & Comment April 21-30
Activity 5: Participants Take the Final Survey and write a shared Reflective Summary

When students complete the five activities they receive an iCollaboratory Web Badge and a certificate of completion.
