I love reading, and have put together this site to help young readers develop a love for reading and poetry, especially performance poetry.

Here you'll find entertaining and useful reading resources for students and teachers- such as a Poetry Calendar featuring poems, photos and reading activities for children; literacy resources for teachers, tips for "Taming the FCAT" and much more.

I'm especially excited about our new Climbing the Poet-Tree Club section, featuring video clips of students performing their own poetry. I guarantee you'll be inspired!
