Put A Poem In Your Pocket: 4/30


pocket_logoApril is National Poetry Month and New York City is getting in the mood for it by hosting the 7th annual Poem In Your Pocket (PIYP) Day on Thursday, April 30, 2009. Write a poem or borrow one from your favorite poet; the point is to share it. Poems will be unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, and bookstores; including a full day of open-mic sessions for NYC public school students in Bryant Park. For a sneak peak, NYC public school student poetry can be read here.

  1. My school is preparing for a school wide math poetry activity for that day. ^_^ Our inspirations Shel Silverstein, Greg Tang (Grapes of Math fame), and a slew of math poems and riddles. Students from Pre-K to 8th grade will participate. ^_^
