Book Spine Poetry

We had our fifth graders make thier own book spine poetry in honor of national poetry month (inspired by scope notes).  We all had a lot of fun, and here are some of my favorites:

I even made my own:

It's a lot of fun, try it at home with your own personal libraries or head to a library with your camera for wider line selection!

April is national poetry month

I made this presentation at work for national poetry month.  I think it's pretty fun just because it has so many different countries represented.  There's a lot of fun poems in there too, although I had to keep them all kid-friendly so they're not necessarily the ones I would have picked if I had free-range.  I hope you enjoy it!
