During this first week of National Poetry Month, I am posting poems that I had to cut from the manuscript for my book THINGS TO DO--as well as suggestions for poetry activities and extensions to do in an elementary classroom using my book. I'm hoping teachers and parents will use these additional poems as inspiration for children to write their own "things to do" poems.
THINGS TO DO IF YOU ARE GRASS
I'll collect the names of people who have commented on my posts during each week in April. Each week, I'll draw a name from a bag. That person will be the winner. If you comment on two posts, your name will be entered in the drawing twice, etc.
