Dear Barbara,

Agloco (the free membership site that lets you earn while you surf the Net) will be releasing its toolbar this week. They are rolling it out in stages, with the earliest members getting it first. If you have joined, you will get an email when your account is activated for toolbar use. If you have NOT joined, now’s the time to do so:


See ya on the Net,

#2. AGLOCO’s Story is Simple

Advertisers, search providers and online retailers are paying billions to reach you while you surf. How much of that money are you making? NONE!

AGLOCO thinks you deserve a piece of the action. What’s the catch? No catch – no spyware, no pop-ups and no spam – membership and software are free and AGLOCO is 100% member owned. Privacy is a core value and AGLOCO never sells or rents member information.

So do both of us a favor: Sign up for AGLOCO right now! If you use this link to sign up, I automatically get credit for referring you and helping to build AGLOCO.


#3. Types of Poetry

by Barbara J. Feldman

Types of Poetry Printable (** for premium members only)

Poetic form refers to rules followed by different types of poems. The rules may describe the rhythm of the poem, the length of a poem, its rhyming scheme, the use of alliteration, or the poem’s shape on a page. Don’t know your cento from your cinquain? The following sites explain all.

Infoplease.com: Glossary of Poetry Terms
From “accent” to “verse,” Infoplease defines nearly a hundred poetry terms and forms. If you visit in April, you’ll find a link in the left-hand column to National Poetry Month. There you’ll find an eclectic assortment of poetry features, included Notable Poets, Quizzes, Poetry Collections organized by poet, and lists of Poetry Awards and Poet Laureates. Don’t miss the Meter, Rhyme Scheme and Forms of Poetry Quiz.

Kathi Mitchell: Types of Poems for Kids
Kathi Mitchell, a language arts teacher from New Hampshire, shares a list of nineteen poetic forms for elementary students. Each form includes a fun sample, and many also include links to more examples. In addition to the usual forms, such as limericks and haiku, Mitchell describes Monster Poems (“Describe an imaginary monster. Try to have a theme …”) and Third Eye Poems (“The Third Eye poem tells about things that might go unnoticed and are improbable or impossible to see with regular eyesight. The Third Eye knows what is really happening.”)

Ms. Rogers: 30 Days of Poetry
“You can write poetry!” exclaims Marsha Rogers, and her thirty daily lessons (with titles such as “Month Metaphor” and “Diamonte”) will show you how. Each lesson explains the format to follow and includes several sample poems written by high-school students. She suggests that students write a few poems for each lesson. “This gives you an opportunity to use the form and, most often, create an even better poem in doing so.”
