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
I don’t know if it’s just me, but whenever I see a single bird on a wire, I feel like it’s the beginning of a story. I guess it’s because that bird is not home, obviously, so they’re on a journey. A journey where? And why? I always wonder. Plus, birds on wires resemble letters perched on lines (like in my poem “Skywriting”). So, here’s today’s equation poem.
And if you love equation poems, check out my Snowman-Cold=Puddle: Spring Equations, published by Charlesbridge and with gorgeous art by Micha Archer.
