More of Shel Silverstein’s Poetry


English Class third graders continued their exploration of some of Shel Silverstein’s poetry. This week the children read the poems, Hinges, Whatif, Homework Machine, and Voices. Emphasis was on reading out loud with inflection. Pupils practiced reading the poems to themselves and then one another.


Pupils then discussed what each of the poems meant to them. Finally each pupil wrote the poem, Voices, in his/her language arts notebook. This is a good poem for recitation, as well.
