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:
*Materials for "Smart," "Mary Hume," "Almost Perfect," and "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 thumbnails above to see more of what is included in the packet.
ENJOY! And please let me know how you used this in your classroom with your feedback! I love getting new ideas!!!
