NPM 2018: A Favorite Resource for Sharing Poetry

National Poetry Month 2018
"Give praise with friends near and far,
flinging words to the sky!"
- Amy Ludwig VanDerwater

100 Quickwrites by Linda Rief is one of my favorite resources for encouraging students to read and write about poetry. 
And this poem from Linda's book always served
as a reminder that most of the time less is better.
I prefer to let the poem work its magic!

  2. I love this poem. I used to have QUICKWRITES and also HEY WORLD, HERE I AM. Now I wonder where both of them are. Hmmmmm....
