Links for National Poetry Month - Part 2: Teacher Instructional Inspiration and Student Interactives!
Follow the best on Twitter in the world of literacy! You can find my collection of sites that I follow by finding "wmsbg301" on Twitter. I only post links when I update my Matthew Whaley Reading and Writing Blog, and occasionally I retweet a link that is of particular interest in literacy. You can look at who I am following here, from the best in professional book authors, literacy blogs, and associations. You will also find that I am following children's authors and illustrators, as well as the best in publishers for children's trade book literature. This is a great way to keep up with the freshest news being shared on the Internet, all collected in one place! There will only ever be literacy links associated with this site. I have the account set for me to grant permission for anyone to follow "wmsbg 301." So, once I do that, you can see the whole collection. :) Enjoy!

This video clip is from an interview done from before the movie version of Ramona and Beezus came out last year. Enjoy reconnecting with the classic Ramona series and all of Cleary's books!

Check out Poetry Tag Time's website! You can learn a bit about each one of the authors as well as read about the concept in the words of the authors. Poetry Tag also has started a neat blog to extend and inspire poetic writing. Even though it has just recently been started, there is already a great post about using Jack Prelutsky's poem for classroom instruction. The blog states that the 30 poems will be celebrated throughout the month of April, so bookmark the page or at it to your blog roll to be reminded of new posts for inspiration! Also, you can check out the blog of Professor Sylvia Vardell for fresh information about children's poetry.
