Day 28 Literacy Spine Poem

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life

As I prepare for presentations this week, I busily dug in surrounded by many of my favorite professional development titles.  And while many of them didn't make the spine poem, I just want to share how blessed I feel to have so many talented authors writing to help make teachers better at what we do.  So here it is:

From my literacy cookbook

and the Next Steps in Guided Reading
Teaching Students to Read like Detectives


  1. 😍 I haven’t composed a spine poem yet. This has been the March of poetry love foe me. Can’t wait to give it a go.

    1. They are fun and addictive! Children's picture book titles are great, too!

  2. Excellent spine poem. I like having students create these from books in my classroom library. I might see if the media specialist will let me make a mess in the library!

  3. Thank you for reminding about the spine poem. I like how the spines create a message and at the same time the titles share your reading life.

  4. Love your spine poem. It certainly shows the depth and breadth of your reading life! It's a spine poem I could also produce,

  5. A lovely and important message for all of us in your spine poem. I find them exhilarating to create. Looking forward to Poetry Month!


I love hearing from you! Please add your thoughts.
