Science Poetry: Student Editions

It's been one week since Janet (Wong) and I released our latest project, The Poetry Friday Anthology for Science, and we've been blown away by the response!  We're so proud of the book and so excited about the crossover possibilities for science and poetry in the classroom.

But we're also very excited about the latest innovation: Student Editions for each grade level!

In addition to the massive Teacher's Edition that follows our usual format of a poem-a-week for grades Kindergarten through fifth grade, we are also publishing Student Editions that feature the poems for each individual grade level (with no Take 5! mini-lessons). And each of those books includes five "bonus" poems as extras! PLUS, these books have art! We've included fun black-and-white sketches for each poem to add visual interest. 

And here's a closer look at a screenshot of a sample page (with art):

Weather-related poems are always fun, don't you think?!

Special thanks to German artist Frank Ramspott and Taiwanese artist Bug Wang for their art for our student editions!

Get your copies now at Pomelo Books!

Now head on over to Reflections on the Teche for the Poetry Friday gathering.

The Take 5 activities are so good and can be done in a short period of time, but still bring in the beauty of poetry and science.
