Now, on to today’s poetryaction!
I got this book as a surprise birthday present from a lovely poet in our 15 Words or Less community! So thoughtful and kind. I really had a good time focusing on sound effects for this one.
Poetryaction: After reading a picture book, sometimes I jot down a quick poem based on something in the book. It could be inspired by the entire book, the setting, a character, or even just a tiny detail in a picture or a single phrase from the text. I’m using picture books as a jumping off point for poems. I thought this might be something interesting for you to do in your classroom, so I’m going to share some of them here. I’m collecting them on a Pinterest board.
Bookalikes: A lot of times, when I’m reading a book, I think, “Oh, this would be fun to pair with XYZ book!” So I’m sharing those here when I think of them. These have their own bookalikes Pinterest board, too:>)
