Poetry Read-alouds


April is National Poetry Month.  With so many fabulous poetry books available why not give poetry read-alouds center stage this month? Included below are books and activities to get you started for lower, middle, and upper elementary grades.

To extend your poetry work even further, TeachersFirst has already reviewed over fifty sites that are top picks by our editors and assembled them for you in one place. Use some of the suggested sites and activities to infuse poetry into whatever subject(s) you teach in April! Even scientists can be poets.
