Book Spine Poetry!

Posted by Laura Losch on May 13, 2010

I got this idea from the Media Specialist of Barrow Elementary School in Clarke County (who is also the Teacher of the Year at his school!) and wanted to share it with you. You take several books and line them up to create a unique poem using just the book titles. Here are two I made:

Call Me Maria,

Travel Team,

Rules A Corner of the Universe

Kickoff, Bounce,

My Almost Epic Summer
