In the Classroom: Bust a Rhyme

Recently Britt Kaufmann used her substitute day to explore the world of poetry with a 1st grade class by reading poems aloud and counting lines and stanzas.  They also explored a few concrete poems, paying particular attention to rhyme, and later, in a group, the students brainstormed rhyming words for a particular word they were given.  At the end of the day, as a class, they memorized and recited “For the World’s Record” by Shel Silverstein.
