This poem is perfect for every reading and creative writing lesson. I have also used it to introduce different themes such as ocean animals in science lessons and other animal or natural science-related subjects. The poem is about a flying fish about to join her predator for dinner without knowing she's in danger. It’s perfect when teaching children about rhyme and meter, fluency, parts of speech, and imagery. It is also an interesting way to teach about animal themes because the poem rhymes in a silly and fun way. My students absolutely love it.
