The book includes a poem a week for the whole school year (K-5) along with TEKS and Common Core curriculum connections provided for each poem, each week, and each grade level. Just five minutes every “Poetry Friday” will reinforce key skills in reading and language arts such as rhyme, repetition, rhythm, and alliteration.
Partly a massive collection of poetry for children and partly a teaching guide for educators and librarians, The Poetry Friday Anthology brings the Poetry Friday concept from the blogosphere into the classroom or library. Explore a poem, connect it with children's lives, and capitalize on a teachable moment. Pausing to share a poem—and reinforce a language skill—on Poetry Friday is a simple and effective way to infuse poetry into current teaching practice or routine.
The book is available in paperback and e-book versions. For more information, check out PoetryFridayAnthology.blogspot.com.
