This year, April 18th  is Poem in Your Pocket Day! What a great reason to throw a poetry party, plan a poetry craft, commit a favorite poem to memory, or write your own piece of prose! To help celebrate this literary holiday, we have created a Poem in Your Pocket free printable, which includes some our very favorite poems.

Free Printable Poems

This poetry printable contains 9 public domain poems for you to print out and use. You can roll up one poem like a scroll and place in your pocket, cut out all the pages and staple them together to create a poem booklet, or glue a poem or two onto a craft project. And because these poems are short, any one of them would also be perfect to memorize.

    Students in 3-5 have been writing poems on google classroom-Spring Poetry Magnetic. They drag and drop words from the list on a background, to create a poem. Also, some students wrote shape poems . I have kindergarten tomorrow, so they will each get a bookmark with a poem on it, that is on Poem in your pocket website. Then, they will echo read the poems. Thanks for the lovely poems

      What a fun message to receive, Julia! It sounds like you have a lot of exciting poetry lessons happening this month. I’m especially glad the bookmarks are making their way to your kindergartners. I know they’ll enjoy them.
