Happy Poetry Friday!
I don’t have a poem to share today, but I did want to announce that I have posted a Soccerverse: Poems about Soccer Discussion and Activity Guide. The 11-page guide is free to download and includes a broad range of discussion questions about the poems. Most are organized around particular poems and focus on concepts such as line length, repetition, and metaphor. The guide also includes three writing activities (with pre-writing handouts) linked to specific mentor texts. Finally, because no poem is finished without revision, there are questions to consider when revising.
I hope that teachers, parents, and kids will find the guide useful. Please feel free to share the news that the guide is on my website and free to all.
Thank you to everyone who read the guide and gave me feedback on it!
Cheriee has the Poetry Friday roundup at her house today. See you there!
