I like this poem because it shows the idea of using different mediums to teach content. It reminds me on the current even raps that we listened to in class. Because of the rhyme scheme, and the fun nature of this tool, that content that the poem demonstrates is likely to be internalized by the students. It can also be added to my repertoire of transitional songs that create learning opportunities even in the down time.
“My hands are by my side. I’m standing straight and tall. My eyes are looking towards the front. I’m ready for the hall. Shh!” ...After the “Shhh!” kindergarten students keep their candle sticks (fingers) up. A cute hallway transition poem
