Poetry

Book Pagez

This subscription site has loads of resources for learning through children's literature. There are lesson plans, discussion questions, vocabulary activities, games, and so much more. The site is well organized, so finding what you need is easy; and the price is pretty reasonable, too!

Storybird

This wonderful, creative website encourages writing through art. Writers (of all ages!) choose artwork to inspire stories and poetry. There are tools for editing, and work can be published on the site or purchased in printed form. There are also how-to guides and courses to help in the writing process. Creating an account (as a teacher or creator) is free, and gives you access to all the writing tools. You can upgrade to a paid account for unlimited word counts and a few extra features.

Poetry Foundation

This is the organization that publishes Poetry Magazine. The website has lots of great resources including (of course) many poems in written, audio, and video formats. You can search for specific poems or poets, explore collections around many themes, and find teaching guides and articles to help in learning.

Poetry Out Loud

This is a national competition in poetry recitation for high school age students. The "official" competition is run by state art agencies, through public schools, so homeschoolers may need to advocate for participation. But the website has some great resources for learning, memorizing, and reciting poetry.

Oxford Owl

This site from Oxford University Press has free ebooks and storytelling videos for elementary level students. There are also some great assessment tools for reading and writing, and some useful printable worksheets and activities.
