Lesson Plan

Poetry for the Elementary Classroom

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Use Shel Silverstein's poem "Batty" to introduce poetry to young readers. This lesson plan 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!
