What really goes on at school! Funny poems and pictures explore the secret lives of school lunches, jungle gyms, pencils, and more.
An introduction to poetry and personification that gives voice to the everyday objects found in a school. From the "Good Morning" welcome of the building to the shrill good-bye of "The School Bell, " beginning readers will be captivated by the quirky personalities of things that normally receive little notice. This wacky world of rhyme brings to life a petrified pencil trapped in a desk, monkey bars, and a slide, among other items. Reed's zany artwork is a perfect compliment to the humorous poetry."--"School Library Journal"
This is a great little book for introducing poetry throughout the curriculum. I especially like the illustrations. This is a level 2 book for grades 1st-3rd. My classroom has a bug theme, and this book helps me to reinforce the theme in several subject areas. My favorites are Ten Ants in a Classroom and Flying Around the Classroom. I also use the book with my ESE and ELL students as a motivational tool.

My kids 11,9, and 6 really liked this book. We really enjoyed "Good Morning, Math Test, and Jack's Pencil." Very cute and inventive poems.

I personally did not care for the poems in this book. I thought some were goofy and nothing that would have children want to read again. More for babies to look at the pictures than school children.
