There¿s no place like school is a collection of poems about what goes on in a school day. These are great poems to share with students in the classroom because they most probably can relate to all the poems. The poems are about math class, recess, homework, and writing. These poems are a must read for children.

This book had a lot of good poems, some of them weren't too admirable, but others were really good. Selections from this book would be good to read to children on their first week back to school.

This book contains a variety of poems by different authors all based on the topic of school. This would be a great book to use with students when studying poetry to teach that poetry can be fun, silly, and based on real-life events.
