April is National Poetry Month in the U.S. and to celebrate, we would like to spread the joys of poetry throughVoki! Beginning April 1st (no joke!), we will post your Voki poets every Friday until the end of April. Do you have your own poem or a favorite poem that you would like to share with others? If so, send us the embed code of your Voki poet and we will include it in our weekly poetry post throughout the month of April. Please send the title, text, and author of the poem as well.
Draw a crazy picture,
Write a nutty poem,
Sing a mumble-gumble song,
Whistle through your comb.
Do a loony-goony dance
‘Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain’t been there before.
― Shel Silverstein
To submit your Voki Poet, email us the entire embed code to email@example.com.

There are lots of fun ways to participate in National Poetry Month. Take a stroll through Poets.org, brought to you by the Academy of American Poets, for 30 ideas on how to celebrate. Also, be sure to check back here for poetry lesson plans and to see if your Voki poet has been published on our blog!
As always, if you have any great lesson plans or ideas you would like to share, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
