Poetry Ideas for Classrooms

Some ideas for teachers who are thinking about ways to bring poetry into their classrooms in the upcoming year:

* Fictional Favorites (picking favorite poems for fictional characters)
* Poetry Hunts
* March Madness Poetry Tournaments
* Creating poems from books such as The Great Gatsby or from speeches (I used one by Winston Churchill)
* Poetry games
* Poems for Two Voices
* Poetry Storybirds and Tagxedo
* Poesiealbums
* Poems and art about poetry
* Poem videos
* Artist Trading Cards, which can have poems on them
* We've been doing a poetry swap, which could be a fun classroom idea.

Not poetry, but:
* 55 Word Stories
