Creating Readers

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by 
Two Writing Teachers.
I planned ahead
For this post during spring break
Created a book spine poem.

I almost gave up
Posting from strange computer
Then success found me!

Located the pic
But couldn't import to blog
Book spine poem sans pic!

Technology - 1 
Me - 0, but after break
I'll insert the pic!

Book Spine Poem sans (without)  Pic:

Day by Day
Igniting a Passion for Reading
In the Middle
"You Gotta BE the Book"
To Understand
Middle School Readers

Igniting my passion for reading is why I read kid books on my break. 
Just finished:  heartrending novel-in-verse, Dust of Eden by Mariko Naga about the Japanese internment
Currently reading:  Kate Messner's Wake Up Missing
Next in stack Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell

Home from California, here's the picture of my book spine poem:


  1. Perfect spine poem! Other than the photo glitch I'm hoping this is a great spring break. It's certainly full of reading.

  2. I love the book spine poem and look forward to seeing the picture. I definitely spend lots of time reading over breaks. I love Messner's WAKE UP MISSING. It's been quite popular with my 7th graders as well.

  3. I keep hearing about Rooftoppers-hope you like it! And sorry for the tech stuff, wondering why it wouldn't work? Keep having fun on your break!

  4. I hate it when technology wins! I love the book spine poem - one of the better ones I have seen.

  5. Sounds like a grand start to your vacay.

  6. I love the book spine poems. Great books.

  7. I can relate to the "Technology - 1, Me- 0" line! ;-) Your book spine poem turned out great!
