Happy Poetry Friday! This is the final poem of 2 weeks of sharing poems from my new 30 Painless Classroom Poems book, Fairy Tale Garage Sale. You know, some days I’m having bad technology days. Like lately, when my car keys, website, and anything else with the slightest whiff of high-tech to it has decided to revolt. That’s kind of how I picture this hapless Fairy Godmother. She probably bought that wand on eBay! This book (and the others in the series) is available in Kindle and paperback, and it includes lots of great extras for teachers!
A Note from the Poet:
In this poem, a lot of the couplets (sets of two rhyming lines) were built around a word I needed to rhyme. I knew Prince Charming needed to be in the poem?of course! So I looked for rhyming words. One option was ?alarming.? So I thought about what could happen that could be alarming (startling and a bit scary). That led to my thinking about how everything could go wrong for the poor Fairy Godmother.
