Poetry for the Elementary Classroom

Use Shel Silverstein's poem "Batty" to introduce poetry to young readers. This lesson is not formatted well, but the plan does suggest learners memorize a poem, recite the poem individually, and then recite the poem as a class. Poetry memorization improves oral fluency and helps build reader confidence!

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
