Today, I’m using another instant poetry form from Educational Technology Training Center (ETTC).  Today’s poem uses the “Spine Poem” template.  Here are the directions found on ETTC’s website:  “If you enjoy doing acrostic poetry, then why not try writing a spine poem? Here’s how it works: take the title of your favorite book (or movie or song) that is 5 words long and use each of the words as the beginning of a line in your instant poem.”  There isn’t a link directly to the “Spine Poem” template but you can find it by clicking on “Spine Poem” in the sidebar on ETTC’s site.

The book title I’m using is Little House on the Prairie.  Here is my poem:

Little House on the Prairie

by Kimberly Bower

Little chicks play under the big
house, the hens peck kernels of corn tossed
on the ground, the horse neighs as
the cart nears the barn, thirsty, hungry, eager to leave the
prairie behind.
