Our website at www.poeticpower.com also includes a database that is divided by grade and subject and contains over 1000 lesson plans on how to teach poetry. You can also subscribe to our newsletter with tips on teaching poetry.
Then there is a writing contest through the National Parks Service. This one I found on Facebook. My kids are not yet old enough, but maybe your kids are. Visit the link to get the details for the NPS writing contest.
Good luck to any and all who decide to enter these contests. Please if you enter I would love to hear from you. If you win, I definitely would love to hear from you.
