Where the Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein

3rd Grade

 

This is a compilation of poems by Shel Silverstein. This book would be great to help children with rhyming and poetry. When I was in school we had to memorize one of these poems to recite and I would do that with my class. These poems also encourage students to bring out their creative side when creating poems in class. It lets them know it is okay to be silly when writing poetry.
