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.

With each suggestion, students would move in line to the appropriate place. Here is the poem that we ended up with.
