Book Spine Poem

Book Spine Poem

These are the books that I used in my Book Spine Poem

Today I thought I would try a book spine poem with my third-grade students for our slices.  Book spine poems are formed by choosing books around a theme or main idea and then arranging all or part of the titles into a poem.  It is a fun way to start talking about poetry and a great way to get some of the kids writing instead of struggling to come up with an idea to write about.

I decided to write a little mystery poem for my students:

The Wizard’s Night Time Adventure

The Wizard

Parents Think I’m Sleeping

Voice from Afar

Something Sleeping in the Hall




Now one foot, now the other


The Midnight Ride


Blogging with my students
