Hop To It

Poems to Get You Moving

Hop to It: Poems to Get You Moving is an anthology of 100 poems by 90 poets—with fun factoids sprinkled throughout, thematic mini-lessons, and extensive back matter featuring useful tips to help maximize student learning. You can share a new poem or two each week of the school year—and come back to share your students’ favorite poems over and over! Poems involve the whole body and incorporate a wide variety of movements—including deskercise!

You’ll find poems on “2020 topics,” too, such as life during a pandemic, virtual learning, staying connected with friends, and standing up for what you believe in. Take a “30-second indoor recess” (or “brain break”) whenever you need it!
