Happy Poetry Friday!
|Elizabeth Steinglass is this week's Poetry Friday host.|
You'll find a bevy of beautiful verse at Liz's blog.
I have a day off from teaching at Northfield E.S.
Instead, I am "in residence" at Michelle Heindenrich Barnes' blog, Today's Little Ditty. That's where you'll find my Poetry Friday post for this week.
Visit Today's Little Ditty to find out why I am ranting about this first grade poem, which made the rounds of the Internet late last week. Seriously, the Mama Bear claws came out on behalf of this little -- and very talented -- poetry cub.

I'm excited to join Renée LaTulippe, Buffy Silverman, and Carrie Clickard -- making up Michelle's fantastic four poetry bloggers. Thanks for inviting me to be part of the TLD team, Michelle. I hope I represent all the poets-in-the-schools out there well.
On Monday, I'll have more Northfield Elementary poems to share. We're moving on to opposite poems -- a great way to learn how to use stanzas.
