After the Visit
Thanks for having me spend time with your community! Here are some resources that I hope will help you keep the book and writing love going even though our visit together is finished.
For every book I shared with your students, I have auxiliary materials available for educators. Just go to my Books Page and click on any book cover. You’ll find all sorts of cool things, like videos, activity sheets, teaching guides, poems related to the book, information about where the book idea came from, etc.
If you go to my Resources Page, you’ll find all those extras categorized by type (Move and Sing, Bookmarks, Mazes and Word Finds, etc.) instead of by book.
If our time together focused on poetry (and even if it didn’t), I hope you’ll visit my Poetry Page. There, you’ll find so many poetry resources and ideas to try with your students. You’ll see examples and find directions for 15 Words or Less Poems, Equation Poems, Poetryactions, Riddle-ku, Things To Do If You Are… Poems, and [______] Is a Word Poems.
Plus you’ll find links to my Small Reads Roundups (groups of poems by season and a couple of other topics), all of my National Poetry Month collections, and a big series of posts on writing poems. Plus more!
In addition, here’s a link to a downloadable .pdf of three of my favorite poetic forms to write with kids.
Stay in Touch
I send out a monthly e‑letter during the school year aimed at educators. If you’d like to give it a try, subscribe here.
You could also subscribe to my blog for more poetry, picture books, writing process and more!
And if you’d like to share about our visit–including any writing that results from it, I hope you’ll tag me! I’m @LauraPSalas on X, Instagram, and Facebook. I’m not very smooth on social media, but I’d be happy to see you there :>)
Thank you, educators, for making my author visits and events awesome!
