Band-Aids by Shel Silverstein

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.
