poetry book to use with my third graders are a series called, You Read To Me, I'll Read To You, by Mary Ann Hoberman.

The poems are designed for two voices. Maybe you could have the students pair up to perform several poems. They are easy and fairly short.

Or maybe you could revise one of your favorites to be read by two groups of people, rather than two people.

There is the original book. I would try that one first. Then there is a scary tale, nursery rhymes (fractured and very cute) and a a fairy tale version. Each book has about 10 to 12 poems.

My students love reading these poems because they are humorous and playful. We add simple costumes, props and movements for more dramatic effect.

Good luck finding the perfect poetry.
