In the middle of this global crisis, parents, teachers, caregivers, librarians, publishers, authors and illustrators are all rising to the challenge of at-home learning. I’ve been trying to do my part by supplying links to my FREE Curriculum, Activity and Storytime Guides linked to learning standards for all my books.
But I also know that many of you are overwhelmed with resources. So I thought it might be helpful to post some of my favorite activities individually right here. I’ll try to do so daily. And for added benefit, I’ll try to pick from the low-tech learning options first.
So, to kick it off, we have Onomatopoeia Poems inspired by my book When the Snow is Deeper Than My Boots Are Tall … which today, in Colorado, it most certainly is. You don’t need the book to do this activity, but it certainly more fun if you do. And you can buy it right here.
So, here you go (below)! Feel free to post your kids’ poems in the comments or e-mail them to me and maybe I’ll include them in a guest poet post.

Have fun. Stay safe. And stay well.
