Are the kiddos getting a little restless? Try math poetry! Now trust me, I am not a poet, but formulaic poetry such as haikus, diamonte, and cinquains make it look easy, and they work for whatever math concept you are studying.

Another favorite poem activity that’s a particular favorite of mine is based on The Important Book. This can be used as an end-of-the-year project, but it’s also a great culminating activity for a unit or it can be used as a review for state testing! Check it out here.
