Check out the cool printable that the Poetry Friday Anthology folks created for my cinquain poem, “Fire!” As we?already know, and as sad national news is proving more than ever this week, firefighters are truly heroes who risk their lives for our safety. (This printable was created before that news broke.)
They have a number of other cool poem printables at their site, too. Great to post in your classroom or library. Or to model your own classroom project after.
I attended Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell’s session about Poetry and the Common Core at ALA last weekend, and it was tremendous. I wish every single teacher in the country had the opportunity to see that. Their Poetry Friday Anthology approach is simple, fun, and effective. And getting to see them demonstrate it was terrific fun. Check out their anthologies!
