Great lesson,1956! I love using Shel in the classroom and several of my second graders need a review of this concept. And they absolutely need the listening practice.

Thanks for sharing! I'm incorporating this into my plans for next week.

In our 2nd grade classroom, we trace the principal on large rolled paper and then place real band-aids on the cut-out. We display the 'principal' with the poem outside of her office.
What fun to decorate the principal....

I love your idea of the narrative and self portrait. I think my gifted third grade students will really enjoy creating their likeness and putting band-aids all over "themselves". Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing. Please just correct the typo of "wrist".

I also enjoy using this poem with my fourth-graders. I project this poem and we read it together, analyze the structure, and copy the poem in our writing notebooks. Then during writing workshop each student writes a narrative about a time that he was injured. They publish the narrative, draw a picture of themselves and place real bandaids on the self-portrait. I scan the picture from the book to make the banner for posting these in the hallway. And I put all of the narratives and self-portraits on display.

This is a really cute poem that I am using in a math lesson. I will read the poem first for enjoyment and the students and I will discuss the humor of the surprise ending.

Then I will start my math lesson on how to write and use tally marks.

Then I will challenge them to count the number of band-aids used in the poem. I will read the poem slowly the second time so they can write tally marks each time I mention another band-aid in the poem. I think this will help them to listen carefully, something they all could use some practice with.

Then I will give each a copy of the poem so they can check their original count with the poem as a visual.

Then they can draw a picture of the boy with all his band-aids on, front and back.

Just thought I would share and see if anyone has any additional ideas to add to the lesson.
