This neat, easy and FREE idea for National Poetry Month: http://100scopenotes.com/2010/03/30/poetry-month-gallery-student-book-spine-poems/.
Book spine poetry: students create poetry from titles on the spines of the books on library shelves. This could be fun & creative wordplay also for English language learners who are just becoming familiar with the language — plus, it gets them to actually look at the books and discover the collection. Titles can be mixed and matched in whatever way the poet desires.
