For National Poetry Month 2021, I’m posting an equation poem each day. Maybe with an image, maybe without. I needed something very accessible and doable this year! Maybe you feel the same way? I’d love for you to join me, and here are several options for sharing your own or your students’ equation poems:
- in the comments below
- on social media with #EquationPoem–and be sure to tag me, please! (@LauraPSalas on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook)
- on the Padlet on my bookpage here
Here’s today’s equation poem. When Randy and I were in the Washington DC area recently, we walked through the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden. Some of the art there is haunting, some is perplexing (to me), and some creeps me out. That rabbit. Anyway, Randy, good sport that he is, agreed to pose with one or two sculptures. Some people recreate paintings on social media to hilarious effect. We don’t put that kind of effort into it, but we did have a bit of fun. Here’s one piece:
I’m so glad Randy has a sense of humor. He never minds my odd requests!
