Synopsis

The Poetry Friday Anthology offers a set of 36 poems for each grade level, K-5 (a poem-a-week for the 9 months of the typical school year). Drawing on decades of experience in classrooms all over the world as well as volumes of academic research and writing, this book presents activities that are poem-specific, skill-based, developmentally appropriate for each weekly poem—and that connect to the Common Core standards for poetry instruction.

Much like "Casual Friday" in the corporate world, there is a perception in the world of literature that on Fridays we should relax a bit and take a moment for something special.

The Poetry Friday Anthology brings the Poetry Friday concept into your classroom and makes it easy for you to take five minutes every Friday to share a poem. Explore a poem, connecting it with children's lives and capitalizing on a teachable moment. Pausing to share a poem—and reinforce a language skill—on Poetry Friday is a simple and effective way to infuse poetry into your current teaching practice.

NOTE: This is the K-5 Common Core edition; there is also a K-5 TEKS version (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) as well as middle school versions for grades 6-8. The Poetry Friday Anthology provides support for educators and parents who might be unfamiliar with today's poetry for young people and might need guidance in how to begin.

Infuse poem-sharing throughout the day and throughout the curriculum. And don't be surprised if it's a wonderful poem moment that students remember most vividly at the end of the school year!
