NPM: Two More Poems from GREAT MORNING!: Post #8

I've selected two more poems from GREAT MORNING!: Poems for School Leaders to Read Aloud. They are two of my favorites from the book: Time for Lunch by Caroline Starr Rose and Things Not to Do by Eileen Spinelli. I think they both have lots of "kid appeal." I think the poems will definitely appeal to teachers and lunch ladies, too!
Eileen's poem reminds me of Karla Kuskin's poem RULES--which my elementary students LOVED!!! Here's an excerpt from the poem:

by Karla Kuskin

Do not jump on ancient uncles.
Do not yell at average mice.
Do not wear a broom to breakfast.
Do not ask a snake's advice.

In case you missed them: Here are links to my other Wild Rose Reader posts for this week:


I'll be giving away a copy of GREAT MORNING!: Poems for School Leaders to Read Aloud by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong. Janet autographed the book for me. It's a poetry book every teacher and school librarian should have.
To be entered into the drawing for the book, all you have to do is to comment on any of my Wild Rose Reader posts that I publish from April 8th through April 13th. I'll announce the winner on Sunday, April 14th.

It's a wonderful book and I hope many schools are using it! Thanks for the Kuskin, too, Elaine, a favorite poem and poet.

Oh, I love this book. I used some poems from it for our recent Poetry Pandemonium at my school. Such a great book to widen the scope of poetry readers in a school!
