Sometimes it’s fun to focus in on one poetry form or topic for a while. National Poetry Month naturally falls into a 30-day period, but I have some other sets of 30 days’ worth of poems you might find fun. Here are some sets from previous NPM celebrations that are free and online.
30 Days of Poems
- 2014: Riddle-ku (with photo hints)
- 2016: Putrid Poetic Ponderings: a chapter book with poems, serialized
- 2017: Wonderbreak: tiny, focused imagepoems
- 2018: Haiku a day
- 2020: Imagepoems, many around water prompts
Or you can check out my inexpensive paperback/Kindle collections I’ve put together for teachers. These 30 Painless Classroom Poem books all come with teaching activities written by a classroom teacher, A Note from the Poet (that’s me) on every poem, and more. You can find out more about these books here.
[My Classroom Connections posts share a way to connect one of my books or poems to a classroom topic–often something timely that you might be covering in the next month or so. Please share this post if you have educator friends who might be interested–thanks!]
