Then a maths teacher friend announced that his wife’s pregnant… and they’re looking for a new car… and they’re looking at baby names. (And they’re both teachers, so that name-thing was proving tricky!) Of course, a Fibonacci sequenced poem (or three) would be perfect for a maths teacher with a sense of humour… Jest for jokes!
I realised through all of this that maths isn’t all bad 😉 because so much of poetry IS maths. And I *LOVE* poetry! I think it would be fair to say that poetry is my favourite kind of maths!
I’m also loving the Poetry Friday community, whose members inspire me as a poet, and as a teacher. If you’re a teacher, you’ll be amazed by all the fabulous ways you can use poetry in your classroom. You can join in by clicking across to the very busy Today’s Little Ditty where Michelle is collecting the links this week. Thanks, Michelle!
But first, who else is telling fibs??? Feel free to leave a little one as a comment – and that’s no fib!
