Flat and Square

Kristine O’Connell George’s book entitled Book! is this inspiration for this blog’s title. You can listen to her read it, because poetry deserves to be read and heard. It begins with “My gift is flat and square,” and ends with “Open wide. Look inside. Book!”

This blog is about throwing open the pages of books and using them to motivate and excite kids about learning math, science and social studies. I am taking this blog journey with my students, an enthusiastic bunch of men and women preparing to become elementary school teachers. I hope you’ll make the journey with us.
