HarperCollins children’s books is calling this: SHELebrate Poetry Month. They have a FREE 16 page packet you can print to go along with Shel Silverstein’s book Every Thing On It. The packet has name tags, bookplates, so-doku (Shel style), and a variety of activity pages with images from Silverstein. Click here to download the packet.
Shel Silverstein is one of the most classic, recognizable, children’s poets (next to Dr. Seuss). I loved reading his silly rhymes that made me giggle as a child and make my kids and I laugh together as we read them now.
The book Every Thing On It was the first posthumous book by Shel Silverstein published last year.
HarperCollins has great parent and teacher/librarian resources. They have a list of their children’s books with free printable guides to coordinate. They also have a list of activity ideas to go with many of their books.
Read and write some poems today. Do it now, don’t delay!
