Sneaker Teacher explains how to write an "I Am From" poem.

Ignite a poetry unit with Poetry Bags.

Small Types inspired her lego crazed little one to create poetry with his favorite toy.  I imagine this would make a fun center activity in any classroom.

At Crayon Bits the first grade teacher encourages reading fluency using poetry.

Small Types also put together their own version of an on-the-go poetry activity that does not require any materials.

Read. Write. Think. has a fun interactive acrostic poem building activity.

First Grade Serenade explains how she uses poetry in the classroom and shares poems of the month.

Celebrate Poetry with a great list of activities from Kristine O'Connell George: Post It Poems, Balloon Poems, Cookie Poems and so much more!

If you haven't had a chance to enter to win a copy of Rip the Page: Adventures in Creative Writing, check it out.  It is a great resource for teaching children to write poetry.
