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. Our car was so filthy with Minnesota spring (read dirt) recently, so we went through the car wash at the gas station. I love watching the rollers or spinners or whatever they’re called. This week, the rollers reminded me of
the woolly caterpillars or woolly bears I always used to see when I growing up in Florida. The colors are reversed, but otherwise, it was like a ginormous caterpillar was coming to crawl over our windshield!
