Term One approaches and we here at Penguin Teacher Academy are brainstorming warm up activities to use with students that are quick, fun, easy and engaging. Book Spine Poetry is a great tuning in exercise, it allows for collaboration or can be set as an independent task. Depending on your class, the poems can be themed to suit almost any lesson. You can create rules around the poem creation and the amount of books allowed to be used or you can allow the students to be completely free form with the task.
You can find some great examples of Book Spine Poetry HERE and feel free to share with us any book spine poems you or your students create, we would love to see them!
