World Poetry Day is on March 1st
March 21st is World Poetry and I’m a fan. When students experience emotion and feeling in the classroom it helps learning to stick. Poetry is a great way to bring these things into every class. To celebrate World Poetry this year students are going to craft some original haiku poems to demonstrate their understanding of Forces and Motion concepts in their science notebooks. We may even have a little poetry reading. Here are some World Poetry Day classroom resources below.
Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility. ~William Wordsworth*
