It only takes a minute. Most children’s poems can be read in an average of one minute.
Created by Children’s Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt, PoetryMinute.org is here to help teachers share poetry with their students by providing a new poem for each day of the school year, Monday through Friday, from the beginning of September until the end of June.
By sharing a new poem with your students each day, you will introduce them to a wide variety of literature and many authors of children’s poetry, improving their literacy and their love of reading.
All poems on this website are reprinted by permission of the author or publisher.
