Learning the famous poem, My Shadow, by Robert Louis Stevenson is a childhood milestone. Each child should know this delightful poem of only 4 stanzas. Memorizing it will add to the depth of understanding and the creativity involved in memorizing will benefit the brain's functions! Included in this package is a youtube link of my students performing it as a rap, as well as a re-written version honoring our soldiers. Rhymes and figures of speech are addressed in this lesson also. This is a great example of collaborative learning in an activity based lesson.
