Kids' Daily Poetry Inspiration
Are you getting excited for National Poetry Month in April? We are! To help you get inspired, each day during the month of March we will post a fun writing activity from some famous children's poets and authors! We hope to keep the excitement up by offering the Sublime Rhymes Poetry Reading Challenge in Beanstack which hosts some of the winning poems from our own Delaware County poetry contest! And don't forget to submit your own poetry to the 34th Annual Young Poets of Delaware County Poetry Contest.
March 25 – Today’s Inspiration: Myra Cohn Livingston
In Myra’s book, Poem-Making (pg. 136), she invites you to create your own shape or concrete poem. Draw an outline of something that inspires you (a soccer ball, paintbrush, birthday cake), then brainstorm your thoughts about the object and work your words into the outline.
