Carry a Poem in your Pocket on 16th April 2011.

April and it's all about Poetry - National Poetry Month. Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is more 'Learning Poetry, Writing Poetry.' How to Write a Poetry session can be taken in classrooms and children can select their own topics on like, writing poetry with names of all animals, colors, places or maybe on what they'd like to be, etc. Know the words, build vocabulary and learn how to rhyme. Here's on Learning Poetry. They can also make a scrap book and write their fav poems or pin up poetry charts on soft board of their classroom/bedroom/study room.

This year, children at Swagat will have a Poem in your Pocket Day as 16th April 2011. Wondering what is this? Well, the idea is to write and carry a poetry in the pocket and share with friends, teachers, parents and anybody they would love to recite. Pin it up on paste board at home or at Library and even supportive to this, draw or dribble in their scrap books and have fun with rhyme and words. Sounds Interesting? Try it and it sure is fun and learning! Do share your poetry with us and I will love to put it on Your Poetry Page on Kidsfreesouls.
