A Fun, Easy Way to Write Poetry

spine label poetry at the library To celebrate Poetry Month this April, Ms. Halli taught kids at the Orion Library a fun new way to play with poetry: Book Spine Poetry! Kids looked at the titles written on the spines of books and chose ones they thought sounded interesting. Kids stacked the books so the titles could be read like a poem. Bella “wrote” this poem called Kittens:

“Three Little Kittens
Hop! Plop!
Rumble Tum
Care For a Kitten”

Encourage your kids to choose books to stack to write their own Book Spine Poetry. If you make a Book Spine Poem here at the Orion Township Public Library, we’ll take a photo and post it for others to enjoy!
