I love writing poetry and finally revised my September Poetry Unit just in time for Back to School. I was happy to hear that so many teachers are using poetry in their classrooms. Some have poetry binders for their students and do a poem a week and others actually do a poem a day during morning work time. There are many special days in September and of course the beginning of school.
First of all there is Labor Day which is celebrated on the 1st Monday in September. It is a great time to talk about the different jobs that people do. You can find some great free resources and printables about Labor Day at
Apples4theTeacher including some fand thematic books about workers. You can find more free resources at Education World which would be great for grades 2-5.
Grandparents Day which is celebrated on the Sunday following Labor Day is a special day for children and their grandparents. Many teachers in the younger grades invite grandparents to their classrooms. I found this great website with a fun song at National Grandparents Day.com You will also find other teacher resources and free lesson plans. If you are looking for some fun crafts to make then you will want to visit dltk.

Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your students. I hope you have a wonderful start to the new school year.
