    LOVE the new look of your blog Julie!!

    I'm guilty of letting poetry slide more often than not. However, your post re-inspired me. With the cool weather we're having here I should make a point to get the girls outdoors and read some fun poems. http://www.teachingstars.com/2013/03/11/poetry-at

      Bwahaha Kristen. I am so glad it is cool enough for you to get out down there. It is hitting about 36 here today, so we had a tea party and read Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening — INSIDE.

      Julie – I will be following along with this series closely. We LOVE poetry.

    Oooh, what a great series! I'm looking forward to it. One thing I'd really like it if you covered – if it happens to fit with the structure you were planning – is any suggestions you might have about good children's poetry anthologies? The best I've found so far is "The Random House Book of Children's Poetry", edited by Jack Prelutsky and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, and I do love it, but the illustrations aren't as captivating as I had hoped they would be. Any suggestions, particularly for that age-range when you're pretty much done with nursery rhymes but still a bit immature for very advanced language?

    I have to admit I really don't do poetry, it's somewhat the bane of my existence (and yes that is WAY overly dramatic). I keep pretending I'm going to share poetry with them, but the reality is it just doesn't happen.

    I really need to work on it because my daughter claims to love poetry, we'll see how much that really is true in a little bit.

    PS: It's going to take a while for me to be used to the change in name, so you might need to keep reminding me who you are :)
