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
Parents Think I’m Sleeping
Voice from Afar
Something Sleeping in the Hall
Now one foot, now the other
The Midnight Ride
