I’m sorry for not posting on Poetry Friday. I had all intentions of writing up a poetry post for Blue Rose Girls—but I felt sick on Friday. After I did my posts for Wild Rose Reader and Jonathan Turley’s blog, I had no energy left…and I went to bed. I stayed at home all weekend, ate soup, and I still feel crummy.
Today, I thought I’d provide links to the posts I did last week for Wild Rose Reader—and to some of the posts I wrote for Jonathan Turley’s blog.
As I mentioned in an earlier post at Blue Rose Girls, I’ll be presenting at two sessions at the NCTE Annual Convention in Orlando in November.
One of my sessions is titled Poets and Bloggers Unite: Using Technology to Connect Kids, Teachers, and Poetry (November 19th, Session A.09 at 9:30 am to 10:45 am). Other participants on the session panel will be bloggers Sylvia Vardell of Poetry for Children and Tricia Stohr-Hunt of The Miss Rumphius Effect—and poets Lee Bennett Hopkins, Marilyn Singer, Pat Mora, and Jame Richards. In preparation for the Poets and Bloggers Unite session, Sylvia, Tricia, and I have been featuring the four poets who will be panel members at our blogs. Here are links to my Wild Rose Reader posts featuring Lee Bennett Hopkins:
