Are you having fun in the countdown? Scribbling lots? I hope so. Many thanks for writing friend, Michelle Kogan for hosting today's round-up on her beautiful blog.
On December 11, Teaching Authors interviewed poet-author, Kimberly Hutmacher. She shared a bit about how non-fiction and poetry writing often meet up. At the end of the interview she challenged readers to write a STEAM poem.
This year, all students in our school are involved in the district science fair for the first time in a while. I've been developing lessons to support the teacher's work in getting kids involved in Science Fair -- and having a blast.
The challenge to write a STEAM poem met up with my recent science experiences and December's Writing Challenge at Ethical ELA. I'm sharing a 'Skinny' and a 'Fib' poem from the week of prompts given by Glenda Funk.
