Spring Time in April

April is poetry month and there is no better way to get into poetry than to read it... and write it!  There are plenty of ways to get started with both.  Poets like Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky are two household names in Room 108 and their books are available in our school library and the local Oak Park Public Library.  Other great authors are out there too!  Scholastic has a great poetry website to get you and/or your child exploring the wonderful world of poetry.  Keep your eyes open for student poetry and poems!
