April 2013 Poetry Challenge -- Free

 I want to invite other upper elementary classrooms to join mine in the April 2013 Poetry Challenge: Thirty Poems in Thirty Days.  I modelled it after the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) where poets write a poem a day for the month of April.

I have chosen five poetry forms and a key word each day.  There are directions and examples for each form and a rubric I use to grade projects like this.

I plan to complete the challenge on my poetry blog Poems of Silliness.

Update June 2014: I have replaced the April 2012 & April 2013 challenges with 10 Poetry Forms.  This packet is all the same poetry lessons in one place.  To download the freebie 10 Poetry Forms from TPT, click here.  To download the freebie 10 Poetry Forms from TN, click here.Hope you can join me.



  1. What a great idea! I bet my students would be so intrigued to see the random topics they'd need to work with in the weeks ahead. Thanks for sharing!
