Today I bring you The Poetry Shed. The Poetry Shed is a page in the larger Literacy Shed.  Here, you will find “animated poems as well as poems read by actors and authors along with written poems and teaching ideas.” (from the site)

I find that there aren’t a huge number of poetry videos on the poetry page but the great thing about poetry is that it’s everywhere!  Every time I visit The Literacy Shed I can’t not go exploring at least a few other pages.  For instance, go look at The Inspiration Shed or The (author) Maia Walczak Shed to name only two. You will find lesson ideas (with accompanying video) for activities to develop poetic language, etc.

I encourage you to explore the sheds a little and share what you find with your colleagues, and with us!
