#1. September 15, 2010
Did you know that September is National Honey Month? My tweet about honey bees (with a link to my Honey Bees website recommendations) was one of my most popular tweets in the last 30 days, according to the click stats I get from Hootsuite. Hootsuite is a browser-based Twitter client that I love because it has multiple, configurable columns, where I can keep an eye on my favorite topics and conversations.
Are you on Twitter yet? If so, I’d love to have you join me there:
See ya on the Net,

#2. Autumn Poems
by Barbara J. Feldman
Autumn Poems Printable (** for premium members only)
With leaves falling, and the weather changing, is autumn more poetic than other seasons? Probably not, but today’s sites bring together poems and rhyming songs that celebrate this particular season for kids (and grownups) of all ages.
4 Seasons Haiku: Autumn
“Traditionally haiku are rooted in natural history and the seasons, and make us conspirators with wildlife, as nature half-writes the haiku before we’ve even put pen to paper.” Beatrice van de Vis is publisher and host of this haiku blog, where all poets are welcome to submit family-friendly haiku. This page is the front door for the autumn poems. At the bottom of the page, click “Older Posts” for more fall haiku. You’ll find the other seasons listed in the horizontal navigation at the top of the site.
Apples 4 the Teacher: Autumn Poems and Rhymes for Kids
Poets represented in this collection of autumn poems include Robert Frost, Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr., and Robert Louis Stevenson. Although this page is simply a listing of poems (most in the public domain so you can freely use them on your website, if you wish) if you click on Fall in the breadcrumb navigation, you’ll find fall coloring pages, worksheets, crafts, printables and short stories.
DLTK: Autumn Poetry
Visit DLTK for lots of Robert Frost, but also Emily Dickinson and John Updike. Best of all, each poem is accompanied by an illustrated printable version in both color or color-it-yourself black and white. And for your littlest ones, there are fall songs to be sung to well-known tunes such as Fr?re Jacques and I’m a Little Teapot. “Red leaves falling / Red leaves falling / On the ground / On the ground.”
