For National Poetry Month 2021, I’m posting an equation poem each day. Maybe with an image, maybe without. I needed something very accessible and doable this year! Maybe you feel the same way? I’d love for you to join me, and here are several options for sharing your own or your students’ equation poems:
- in the comments below
- on social media with #EquationPoem–and be sure to tag me, please! (@LauraPSalas on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook)
- on the Padlet on my bookpage here
Here’s today’s equation poem. It’s been a very stressful time of home-hunting recently, and it’s good to find joy in the small moments, like this little scene in front of us in the Chick-Fil-A drive-thru Saturday morning.
And if you love equation poems, check out my Snowman-Cold=Puddle: Spring Equations, published by Charlesbridge and with gorgeous art by Micha Archer.

I’m sorry it has been stressful home hunting. I agree finding “joy in the small moments” gets us through stress. I love this photo and equation poem! I love seeing dogs with their heads out car windows. It’s joy just to see them having joy.
Exactly! Hard to explain why the sight of this brings so much joy, except that their joy is just contagious!
