  • A Beach Story I went to the beach today. The sun was as hot as hot sauce . The sky was as blue as water . The ocean was as cold as a popsicle . I swam in the water just like a whale . I played in the sand and built a big castle . While I was walking around I found a snake . I love to run on the beach like a roadrunner . I had fun at the beach. LaVante, age 5

    • Terban, M. Time to Rhyme: A Rhyming Dictionary
    • Young, S. Rhyming Dictionary (Scholastic)
  • This book was created for teachers to use as a guide as they introduce poetry to their students. By giving students an opportunity to write from their “heart”, they become poets who can share their feelings, hopes, dreams, fears, and experiences. When integrating poetry and technology software, graphic images, and bookmaking, even more possibilities unfold. The sample poetry in this guide was created by kindergarten - second students in the Austin ISD. This guide is also used to teach teachers how to unleash the poet inside them, as they reach for the poetry of the stars. Gail Laubenthal
  • If we follow the children, they will surely lead us into their hearts, minds, and dreams. We are just the guide…they are our gift! Gail Laubenthal
