These are two essential books for any teachers and librarians sharing poetry–Yay! Please forward or Share these with any educators you know:>)
Now, wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
This week’s image makes me think of:
1) A lizard
2) A cat burglar
3) An earthquake
And here’s my poem first draft:
Tree Frog, Stuck
I tuck my suction cups
into stony bark tree,
plucking luck from gravity
–Laura Purdie Salas
What does this picture make YOU think of? Whatever enters your mind, even if you think it’s strange, jot a quick 15 words or less poem and share it in the comments! Have fun!
