This poetry book includes all different school supplies. It can teach young students about poetry, while there are also many amazing pictures inside. A great follow up activity can be to have students write their own poem about school supplies. ( )

What do pencils, lockers, packed lunches, and homework-eating-dogs have in common? They are all about school, and they are some of the subjects included in this collection of poems about school! These poems are written for kids, about things that kids know: school supplies, the school day, school subjects, and the bus ride home. Enter the world of silly poems with colorful titles and words that swim on the pages. The pictures on each page are photographs of different school-related objects or of kids who are at school. The photos either act as colorful backgrounds for the text, or are smaller accessories to the poems. This collection is a stellar way to introduce children to poetry, as it incorporates a wide range of poems, and even includes a glossary in the back for words that kids may not know yet. There is also a section at the back of the book called “The Language of Poetry” which defines some poetry terms and different kinds of poems (couplet, rhyme, cinquain, haiku, etc.). This is a nice tool to work with kids and explore how others interpret the school day and school-related objects, learn about poetry, or enjoy the pictures—maybe you will all feel inspired enough to write your own poetry.
