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.

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.

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.

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.

Trace the principal

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....
