Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

Poetry is a wonderful way to get kids engaged in reading and writing. Poetry.org is a great place to start. Here are some more wonderful resources to help bring poems into your students’ and children’s lives.
