Write 30 Rhymes in 30 Days
April is National Poetry Writing Month. I often participate personally, and the last several years I have created a challenge that is geared toward elementary students. This year I am focusing on writing couplets, which are the building blocks for longer poems. I chose a word family for each day of the month. I challenge you and your students to write a poem each day in April.
