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. I love how pine cones are full of seeds that grow up to be pine trees that make pine cones. I feel like this equation poem should’ve included a corollary equation (is that what they’re called?): forest / pine cone = treasure chest. Not sure I came up with exactly the right words here, but I’m restricting myself to images I’ve taken that are still on my phone, and as the month gets busier and busier, my equation poems are getting squeezed into tinier bits of time! Glad April is almost over or I might just be posting a blue rectangle with a couple haphazard words in it!
And if you love equation poems, check out my Snowman-Cold=Puddle: Spring Equations, published by Charlesbridge and with gorgeous art by Micha Archer.
