I just posted my very first sale item on TpT. It is a collection of 15 poems for the month of January...all about winter. All my other collections are still free and will continue to be free. Thank you for your support... and comments... and referrals to my little blog.
I love poetry...always have! What keeps me going??? The fact that the children will remind me that it is poetry time....or they will ask me "what poem are we going to work on this week?" ...or when former students still visit and ask if they can do poetry with me in the mornings before they report to their classrooms.
Teachers are always asking what do exactly do I do... My answer: nothing fancy...it's not a center...I have no formula...it's just something that we 'look forward' to every Friday. Poetry Friday! Reading it to ourselves, reading it aloud, reading it with expression...and then creating something beautiful to go along with it.
If you love poetry...it shows in your students. If it's a chore...something to just fill the time...it shows. Another question I get asked a lot..."how do you fit it in?" My answer: I just do!
I hope you enjoy my new collection. I am working on several more collections. I'm look forward to your feedback!
