2nd Poetry Wax Museum Success!

Clip to ScrapBook #6

I taught 2nd for 5 years & did a huge wax museum with our poetry unit. The kids loved it! I selected tons of shorter/easier to memorize poems that were appropriate for 2nd & the kids selected from that list. Occasionally a kid had a personal favorite that they did that wasn't off the list.

I tried to pick poems that would be easy to use props with. Bruce Lansky, Jack Prelutsky, & Shel Silverstine were among the kids' favorites.

Some can't help but get stage fright & freeze. To help ease this, we pasted a copy of their poem on the back of their "sign" (kids had an advertisement sign in from of them so the visitors knew what they were listening to).

Good luck!
