Every Tuesday I post a list of the poems I read for my year-long poetry reading goal. I welcome anyone who wants to join me in reading more poetry this year.
The poems for this week were taken from Poems to Learn by Heart by Caroline Kennedy. These were from the section titled It is the duty of the student.
Duty of the Student by Edward Anthony (As a teacher I can say, students are rarely this way.)
Gnome by Samuel Beckett (Short and sweet. Loved it!)
Homework by Jan Yolen (So true..)
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
JUMPING ROPE (FUN!)
