"Fixer-Upper" by Terry Webb Harshman

Here is a "poem movie" for Terry Webb Harshman's poem, "Fixer-Upper" created by graduate student Blaire Beathard. Watch it here.

This poem is featured in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School in the seventh grade section, week 12, for the theme, "House & Home."


  1. As I said in the comment at the poem movie's link, that house must definitely be the "AFTER" house. (Come to my house to see the "BEFORE" lawn and garden--and bring your gardening gloves and clippers with you, please!!)

  2. Also: for additional cross-genre comparison, this poem movie would be easy to pair with a picture book: THE HOUSE ON DIRTY-THIRD STREET by Jo Kittinger.

  3. Love that last picture - that must be you all, Blaire?

    I'm with Janet. You could come take a photo of our yard now for a good "before" shot... ;0) And Jo's book WOULD make a wonderful pairing with Terry's poem.
