David L Harrison has established a Young Poets’ “Word of the Month” poems contest. There are two grade brackets: grades: 3-7 and 8-12.
Each month this blog will feature a word of the month to stimulate a poem. Teachers who wish to participate are encouraged to post no more than three poems per class per month.
Students everywhere in grades 3-12 are invited and encouraged to share their poems with the readers on this page.
Five Easy Steps:
1. Teachers can choose as many as three poems per classroom to post.
2. For children under 13, teachers should have on file a permission slip signed by a parent or legal guardian.
3. Teachers go to the box at the bottom of the screen where it says LEAVE A RESPONSE and submit your poems.
4. Please include the student’s name, grade, school, and city in the post.
5. Hit button to submit.
Thank you and have fun!
PS: The word for January is JOY.
