Poem for a Pickle written by Eve Merriam and illustrations by Sheila Hamanaka is a great source for poetry. This book is comprised of 239 different styles of poems. This is a great source for teaching children about writing poetry. I would have my students do shared reading so that I could guide them and model for them first how to read poetry and then they could read and share their favorite poems with one another.

Haleysantucci I would utilize UDL principle 6.2 and 6.1 by instructing the students to plan out written poem and make sure that they have an appropriate goal in mind for when they are developing their very own poems, using the books poems as examples. 4y
Haleysantucci I would utilize the ESOL strategy 8 by modeling how to write a poem and explaining how to find it in the book and then showing them how to use the book as a helpful reference in writing their poem. 4y

DrSpalding Good for you! Concrete poems are a lot of fun for students. You can cut out different shapes on the diecut machine in the curriculum materials center and have children create them based on the cut outs. Hands on poetry! 4y

A Poem for A Pickle is a P book filled with silly poems by Eve Merriam, illustrated by Sheila Hamanaka. It would make a great resource to introduce students to poetry. Bursting with rhymes and repetition to hook young readers, and illustrations to aid students with comprehension. I believe it would work best for IR, but also for SR, especially if used to introduce poetry because teacher can model how to properly read poems.

AshleyAA Use the provided activity, after reading some silly poems from the book, to have the class create their own quirky poems using the letters of the alphabet. This can meet UDL principles 2.3 and 6.2 that relate to supporting decoding of text and supporting planning and strategy development. Furthermore, it meets EL strategies 6 and 8, which relate to monitoring student comprehension and using direct instruction. 5y
DrSpalding Having the students create their own quirky poems is an excellent follow-up to utilizing this anthology in your classroom. Wonderful choice. 5y
