Welcome to Day 23 of Wallow in Wonder! For my 2016 National Poetry Month project, I will celebrate learning and writing from learning, writing poems from each daily Wonder at Wonderopolis. As I did with my Dictionary Hike in 2012, I am looking to surprise myself with new inspiration daily. This year, such inspiration will show up in my inbox each morning. I will print it and carry each Wonderopolis Wonder around all day...and in the afternoon or evening, I will write and post the poem for the next day.
I invite anyone who wishes to take this challenge too. Just read today's wonder over at Wonderopolis, and write a poem inspired by it for tomorrow. Share it tomorrow at your own site, and if you wish to link in my comments for others to find (or share your poem there), please feel free to do so tomorrow, the day after the Wonder is published at Wonderopolis. If you would like to share any ways you have used Wallow in Wonder or your own site (safe for children only please), please feel free to do so in the comments.
My April Poems Thus Far
And now for Day 23!

Students - Happy Day After Earth Day! This means that it is STILL Earth Day...because we live on this planet every single day.
Today's poem is actually not a new one (the only not new poem of Wallow in Wonder). However, I still wanted to offer it as part of Wallow in Wonder. I thought of this poem as connected to today's Wonder, and I have never shared it before...so it felt like the perfect time. It's a little bit funny that I am recycling a poem for Earth Day, don't you think?
I believe that paying attention is perhaps the best way that we can help our Earth. For when we pay attention, we will notice more, care more, and do more to take care of this beautiful planet we are lucky enough to call home.
I will add audio and a painting on Sunday!
Have fun outside!
It is a delight to host teacher and librarian Stefanie Cole and her students from Ontario, Canada at Sharing Our Notebooks this month. This is a fantastic post full of notebook inspiration, a video clip, and a great book giveaway from Stefanie. Please check it out, and leave a comment over there to be entered into the giveaway.
Happy Day 23 of National Poetry Month 2016!
