Free Webinar: How to Teach Kids to Love Poetry

Spring is the perfect time to explore engaging ways to teach your students about poetry! After you implement these strategies, you’ll be amazed at how quickly your students are able to read, write, and understand poetry… and even more surprised to discover how much your students love poetry, too! Most of the activities were designed for upper elementary students, but many can be adapted for younger or older students. Even if you haven’t enjoyed teaching poetry in the past, you’ll find yourself looking forward to your next poetry unit! Click here to sign up for the replay!
