In addition to being a fun way to teach literacy skills, this is another low-cost way to incorporate great literature into your reading program. (See my previous blog https://tinyurl.com/readingonabudget) Most libraries have at least one copy of Shel Silverstein. Also, in order to save paper, you can post this into your students' Google drives (if your school uses Google) so that the student can mark up the poetry. Regardless of how you deliver the poem, the results are the same. The students are laughing and learning the literacy skills at the same time.
