Creating poetry using books!

April may be National Poetry Month, but it’s not the only time to celebrate poetry. Our Freshmen Falcons have been studying poetry and stopped by the library to use their creativity to create book spine poems.



Here’s how they did it:
1. Students chose a topic. This was just a starting point. As they searched for titles, their ideas may have changed.
2. Students developed a search strategy by deciding what type of search to use (keyword or title).
3. Then students performed the searches using the library catalog and located the books on the shelves.
4. With a minimum of 5 books, students then created their book spine poem.

Some classes were asked to write a short explanation of their poem and what inspired them to write it. The results were incredible! The students really thought about their poems and carefully choose titles that added meaning and depth to their poem.
