Teach This Poem

Teach This Poem - Poets.org

The title poem from my book was recently the Teach This Poem of the week over on Poets.org. It was the first poem for the new school year! Super honored to be kicking things off. Click through the images for an excerpt from my poem and an excerpt from the lesson (love the use of images of a hurricane!).

I’ve always loved this time of year—some new school supplies, a fresh haircut, the anticipation of the leaves changing, the leaves changing, the beauty of late summer/early fall meeting the beauty of reading together, of discussing books & language & sound & meaning. The beauty of notebooks & careful note-taking!!

Sunflowers & gratitude to Ansley Moon for developing this lesson. Full poem + lesson here.
