This sweet little mini-unit is perfect to kick-off your poetry study! It uses 3 of Shel Silverstein's fun and engaging poems for children, and the activity sheets, flapbooks, and flip-flap booklets will encourage your students to think critically about the poems and delve into figurative language!
Included in the Shel Silverstein mini-unit are:
*"Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out"
*Activity sheet & flapbook for poetic devices/elements
*Flip-flap booklets for rhyme scheme, irony, and author's purpose
*2 Making Inferences activity sheets
This mini-unit is a part of a larger bundle I created that is a completely comprehensive tool for teaching poetry. If you're interested in creating an entire 2-week unit of study on poetry (with a musical flair!), please check out this bundle: Poetry in Music Lyrics - with BONUS materials for Shel Silverstein, The Road Not Taken, & more!
. Check out the preview to see the goodies in the mini-unit!
ENJOY! And please let me know how you used this in your classroom! I love getting new ideas!!!
