Room 17 Autobiography Poems

April is National Poetry Month, so I tried to do something poetic in many of our library classes.

In third grade, the kids had just finished their final assessment on how to use the online catalog to find books on the shelf; the rule of thumb I gave them was that nonfiction books have actual numbers in their call numbers. However, one section defies the rule: biographies (it's B plus the subject's last name ... e.g. B Moore for a book about me).

 I decided to combine a lesson about biography call numbers with a poetry assignment. Here is Room 17 working on theirs, as well as some of their poems after the photos.
