Happy Hannukah to everyone celebrating!
This week, I’m going to be sharing poetryactions. Quick poems written in reaction to picture books. I hope you like them!
My house feels a little like The Nut House right now, mostly because of holiday stuff and book stuff. It’s all good and cheerful! But a little bit crazy:>)
At bedtime in Eric Litwin’s Bedtime at the Nut House, the little nuts aren’t following directions, and Mama has to resort to the LOOK. Every parent has it. Every teacher has it. Every kid recognizes it. I decided to play with and exaggerate the effects of THE LOOK in my poetryaction. Note: The Look is a permanent fixture once you have it. I haven’t been a classroom teacher for a long time, but I still make good use of The Look every once in a while:>)
Also, teachers, if you are or you dream of being a writer, too, but you’re having trouble making time for writing, you might be interested in The Writer’s Resolution January Group. It’s an inexpensive, monthlong accountability group to help us start our writing of 2016 with a bang! I’d love to have some teachers in the group!
