by: Kalli Dekos
This book contains 33 poems related to various aspects of school, from “Math Test” to “The School Bell”. The poems are easy to read and understand the meaning. They are “fun”, short poems. The text is also often written in interesting ways, such as big and bold, stretched out across the text, etc.
This would be a good book to use the beginning of the school year, reading 1 a day during read-a-loud time. It’s a good idea to expose children to poetry on a regular basis. You could use this book for any elementary grade level.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

This is the text to song by the same title that most children are familiar with. The illustrations reflect the text clearly and there is a single 2-4 word phrase on each page.
This would be a good book to use as an introduction to a baseball unit in the spring. You could always sing the song afterwards.
