More Book Spine Poetry

Classes have continued to come in to learn about book spine poetry. Yesterday Mrs. Boyle’s class came and explored a variety of poetry. We ended by creating a book spine poem together. I selected several books and passed them out to student volunteers. As I handed each book out, I said the title and the student repeated it. The students lined up in a straight line holding their books and we read the poem as it was. Then we talked about ways to rearrange it. I offered suggestions and students offered suggestions. With each suggestion, students would move in line to the appropriate place. Here is the poem that we ended up with.
