Book Spine Poetry

April is National Poetry Month, so exciting!

Saw an awesome idea at 100 Scope Notes about creating book spines poetry. We decided to give it a try today. Kids pulled down half of a bookcase and here’s the very first cento  they came up with:

One Big Rain It's Raining Pigs and Noodles. The Cat in THe Hat Buying Mittens, The Vasa Piglet  Instruct[ion]s Blue Chicken To Fly Outside Your Window. Shapeshifters Hop on Pop, Maps  Sing a Song of Popcorn

One Big Rain
It’s Raining Pigs and Noodles.
The Cat in The Hat
Buying Mittens,
The Vasa Piglet
Instruct[ion]s
Blue Chicken
To Fly
Outside Your Window.
Shapeshifters
Hop on Pop,
Maps
Sing a Song of Popcorn

Quite silly, but the part about blue chicken is quite beautiful too.

Such fun game, I’m curious to see what they will come up with next.
