Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, I bet you came here expecting to READ a poem, but I’m going to ask you to write one. A fast one! A simple one!
This past Tuesday, my newest book came out, Snowman-Cold=Puddle: Spring Equations (illus by Micha Archer, Charlesbridge). I’m so excited! I shared it here a couple of Fridays ago, but only one person put a poem in the Padlet. So, I’m trying again. Will you please write an equation poem about anything you want and share it in the Padlet below? It can be simple text–you don’t have to do anything fancy! You’ll see a few new examples from the Books for Breakfast event I attended last week, where I shared this book. Thank you, teachers at my table, for sharing your poems! Thank you so much! And here’s the one I made a couple of weeks ago when the temperature here in Minnesota was 47 below with wind chill.
Your equation poems can be related to science, seasons, friendship, history, love, poetry–whatever you like! Thanks so much for playing! Just click on the pink + sign in the bottom right of the Padlet to add yours. [Edited to add: You guys, these are fabulous!!!]
Two more things:
- I’ve been snowed in the past couple of days, so my WW meeting, post office run, etc., have all been delayed until today. I will visit everyone’s posts, but it will probably take all weekend:>)
- If you’re interested in writing for children or you’re already a children’s writer, I’ve gathered all my best resources on my website, as well as starting a Patreon blog for those interested in supporting my efforts to share great info with kidlit writers. Thanks for considering!
Mr. Linky is rounding us up today, so please fill in the blanks below to both leave your link and to check out all the other links you can explore. Thanks for being part of Poetry Friday, and I look forward to reading all of your posts throughout the weekend!
