Share Your Favorite Poems for Poem in Your Pocket Day

Last year I wrote a "Things That Make Me Go Hmmm..." post called "Which poems would Katniss and Peeta Carry for Poem in Your Pocket Day?" You can use the same prompt with any novel for any character, though. Or, just enjoy the day with your students by sharing your favorite poems. :) Either way, it's a great way to spread literacy and appreciate poetry.
