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.

The difficulties of School is a subject which many have written about. Children are in some ways like savages, untrained in the ways of society. They may not stop to think whether it is wrong to torture other children. Students are often the target of emotional or physical bullying. Most schools have various groups or gangs of students that exclude all others. Yet, there is much good that children and teens do between each other. There is no question that school can be a difficult place to be and there is much to write about school life.
Here's a collection of rhyming poems about school that were written for your enjoyment. You'll find poems that talk about the various stages of education, including verses about preschool, kindergarten, primary, middle, and high school. I think it's important for us to motivate and inspire our children to enjoy school by encouraging them to enjoy learning and helping them excel. Kids should also have a positive attitude towards school, by realizing it's a fun place where they can socialize with friends, and also be active physically. Let's start off with a very general poem about school for kids. These verses may be shared with children of any age. Subjects and teaching styles, are plentiful and vary.
Poems for Social Studies Class
Students will recognize their schoolteachers and professors among the incisive portraits, and teachers will find serious and funny poems on the ups and downs of the trade that verges on vocation. Like musk oxen we hunkered while his lecture drifted against us like snow. I passed by the school where I studied as a boy and said in my heart: here I learned certain things and didn't learn others.
