What a great success Poem in Your Pocket Day was!! Thank you to everyone who kept their favorite poem in their pocket. I also enjoyed the opportunity to visit Ms. Lewis’ and Mrs. Galvin’s Poetry Cafe yesterday. It was awesome to hear some original poems from students!! Here are some pictures from the cafe:

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,

The Rising Star of Rusty Nail,

Airhead, Happy Kid,

Thirteen,

Trouble, Beauty

Travel Team,

Rules A Corner of the Universe

Kickoff, Bounce,

My Almost Epic Summer

Do you have any favorite books that you could combine together to make a poem?

I’m having an awesome Poem in Your Pocket Day! I saw one 6th grader sharing her pocket poem with her friend in the hall – she received two bags of candy!!  🙂
