Poetry wall blog?

I am still thinking about how to create a bulletin board blog (a BBB?  Too cute?) and wondered about going in the direction of poetry.  (Perhaps on the brain at the moment since iReady assessments are coming back up.).  It would relieve the reading load and responses would naturally be shorter as well.  Who does what relative to poetry instruction already?  Any ideas for how to make this work?  Maybe seasonal poetry with "noticings" about the language or connections to own experiences.

  1. Possible topics: snow, freedom, heroes, friendship,

  2. Or you could do it by genres of poetry. Maybe a student or two in a class could write haiku and then other students could follow with theirs. Or alliterative poetry, cinquains, etc. April is national poetry month so maybe then?

  4. In the past I have had students take a creative writing piece, usually personal experience, and choose 15 words or so that are most important to the piece as a way of creating a poem related to their story.
