Show Me Poetry Month

Welcome to Show Me Poetry Month!

Writing teachers know the value of poetry in our classrooms, but sometimes it can be hard to fit it in to our busy schedules. In an effort to make more time for good writing, the Missouri Writing Projects Network created Show Me Poetry Month.

Show Me Poetry Month is a initiative through the MWPN to encourage teachers and students in Missouri to connect and learn from a common read aloud of an acclaimed verse novel.

Students read, write to each other, and connect with others through the power of poetry!
