Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein is a classic collection of little poems that children love! Even though this is not a full on story, children can still remember main poems from the book and it can be used as a "if we have some extra time" treat! I plan on having this in my classroom and the activity would have to depend on what poem I am using, for example if I were to use the poem Boa Constrictor I would probably do a lesson on sequencing because it talks about going up the body in order. I also think it would be good to have this in my class to work on fluency, just to have the students to read to themselves to work on the rhythm I think would be great!
