What a Day It Was at School! by Jack Prelutsky

What a Day it Was at School is a hilarious collection of poems by Jack Prelutsky. When a cat mother asks her cat child how the day at school went, his response is a reading her the journal full of poems. This feline’s journal covers: music, gym, and art class, lunchtime madness (a food fight), going to the nurse, a field trip, a visit from an author named

Mister Hoobybatch, and so much more. Although this is outrageously funny, be careful not to give your students/children the wrong idea (it’s funny to start a food fight).

My favorite poems were:
My Backpack Weighs a Thousand Pounds (Most students can relate to this with all of their enormous, overweight books).

I Wish I’d Studied Harrder (This made me burst into laughter. The student wrote a poem, mostly misspelled, about how he/she wished he/she had studied harder for his “spellink” (spelling) test. And yes, that is how he/she spelled harder and spelling.)

It’s Library Time (The protagonist goes on adventures as he/she reads books in the library.)

I Know How to Add (The main character’s head is spinning as he tries to figure out complex math problems.)
Join the fun with these poems!

Awards/Recognition(s): Jack Prelutsky is a National Bestselling author, and Doug Cushman has won the 2005 Christopher Award for his artwork for Never, Ever Shout in a Zoo.
