Wordless Wednesday – Found Poems

A few weeks ago the Stenhouse blog did a week of Book Spine Poetry. I loved the idea and started noticing the poems found in the stacks of books I have sitting around my classroom and home. I found this one and thought I would share.





How have you or your students been inspired to find poetry hiding in ordinary places?


  1. We have been doing list poems in 2nd grade based around our observations of the life cycle of the butterfly. Colored camouflage and wispy fights have emerged and it has been delightful. Donald Graves is a master 🙂 It’s about the observation.
