The Poetry Friday Anthology

The Poetry Friday Anthology by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong 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. (Pomelo Books, 2012).

My poem “Summer Showers” is featured.
