Educators, it’s almost April! I’m excited on two counts:
1) My new book, Water Can Be…, publishes tomorrow! I’m still creating educator materials for it, but you can find reviews, my first teaching guide, and a bunch of videos (both book trailers and content videos) here on my site.
2) I’ll be sharing a riddle-ku (riddle haiku) every day in April, right here on my blog. Thirty riddle-ku, coming your way! You can click on the Educators tab above for a description and tips for classroom extension activities. Please feel free to share with all your elementary educator friends–this will be an awesome brief poem to use with your students every day:>)
[Educators, please click here to see a roundup of the entire month’s riddle-ku and also to get suggestions for using these riddle-ku with your students.]
UPDATE: My riddle-ku are now available in Kindle and paperback as Riddle-ku: Haiku for Very Close Reading (along with tons of great auxiliary materials for teachers), part of the 30 PAINLESS CLASSROOM POEMS series.
Thanks, and have a fantastic Poetry Month!
