In conjunction with my article at The Book Chook, Tips and Resources for Poem in your Pocket Day, I’ve created a very simple PDF of four pockets. It’s free to download if you’re a parent, teacher or librarian who would like to use it in some kind of activity with elementary/primary aged kids. Simply click here to go to my Free PDFs page, and scroll down.
Children could write out a favourite poem or create one of their own. They could then decorate a pocket, cut it out, and glue it to a backing sheet. Later it’s a simple matter to add their poem to this “pocket”, all prepared for Poem in your Pocket Day on April 30, 2015.
I hope you’ll help the children you know to celebrate the fun of poetry!
