How I Use It
This product offers teachers a great resource for poetry lessons. As a teacher I could see downloading the various lessons and using them in your elementary/early middle school classroom. As a fun downtime activity you could also use this site for games and puzzles. They offer a section where the students can log on and play.
My Take
I really like this site. It offers teachers a number of downloadable lessons that can be easily incorporated into the class. In addition these lessons are aligned with the common core standards so they are up to date and not some old worn out lesson. I like how it offers a section on Shel Silverstein so the students can get to know her as a person. It also allows students the chance to go on the site and explore the games and puzzles she has created just for them!
