The prestige Shel Silverstein is know for his poems and artwork that‘s associated with each poem. Silverstein is a great author to use for an AS. The amount of books and poems he has written for children can be researched by the students.

DezireeLara UDL Principle 6.2 on planning and development can be used for the steps that each student must complete during the AS. ESOL strategy 15 will be important for these students, repetition will be key for these students on learning the material and presenting facts in their AS. 4d

This Book full of poetry is a great way to introduce fun and exciting poems to a class! I think doing choral reading with this book is a good idea because the students will have first hand comprehension of the humor. Students will love and laugh at all the poems in this book and be eager to write their own! This shows a wide variety of poems and can show the array of poems and topics the students can think about in their own poems. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 Using ESOL #8 and modeling how to read poetry and learning about rhythm can be beneficial for when you send the students to make their own. Once you read a couple, the class can read them chorally and get a feel for poetry. UDL 7.2 we can talk about relevance, value and authenticity of the poems and the poems we write. http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/calendar-activities/where-side... has multiple grade ideas 4d

Night Garden: Poems from the World of Dreams | Julie Paschkis, Janet S. Wong

#LilithJuly Day 11: #SweetJane(t) Wong and Julie Paschkis collaborated on this poetry book with 15 poems in all. Each poem calls out to the darkness and the stars in quilted softness, the sandman sprinkling its golden dust throughout the pages in all its silvery-leafy-surreal texture as seen in Julie Paschkis‘ dreamlike artworks and Janet Wong‘s soothing verse. My review complete with poem excerpts: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5Rr

@Sunraven #treeproject

Shel Silverstein saved my sanity as a child. I don't know how many times I read his books. I had a lot of his poems memorized for years.

Sunraven My sister loved this book, too! I was more into fairy tales and epic fantasy and pioneer stories (which probably “saved” my sanity by making me seem only questionably sane 😆), and all I really remember from this book is the illustrations ... though I feel I should re-read it, because surely I remember at least a poem or two, hmm. 6d
jchawkins @Sunraven Hahaha that's awesome. Yeah, I got into fantasy as I got into middle and high school, but these dark little poems were great. Phillip Pullman talked about this once...something about how it's important to acknowledge darkness to children. I should find that quote. (edited) 6d
Sunraven IME that could be a statement about how adults often avoid what they think of as darkness more than a statement about kids, but I do have copious Thoughts on this subject, thanks to the perils of my brand of weird. 😆 I‘ve just noticed that adult fiction sometimes handles “darkness” shallowly, while YA classics sometimes bludgeon you like causing trauma is the goal. I always preferred the route where dark and light are both real, and balanced... 6d

#LilithJuly Day 8: This book is a collection of 13 poems celebrating the beauty of losing one‘s self in the pages of a book. O‘Connell George reminds the reader that all we need is a “great new book to read” hence Don‘t Need a #WindowSeat while Harley rhapsodizes about This Book which is “just right -/ I‘m reading by flashlight deep into the night.” I can remember a book or two that made me feel this way.

So many literary and historical connections in here. The first poem had me floored because it reminded me so much of LEMONADE and Warsan Shire‘s poetry in it.

This fun, goofy book of poems is perfect for choral reading in class. The variety of types, rhymes, and funky drawings is a perfect assess to your classroom library.
