Jack Prelutsky’s I Was Walking in a Circle as an example of Concrete Poetry

This poetry month we examined how the children identify poems. We also established the title, verse, and importance of the words chosen. We didn’t have enough time to explore much more, but we did compare some very formal poems with a few Shel Silverstein pieces.

My favorite part of poetry month is the last day. We usually look at either haiku or concrete poems. How can we resist?
