Where the Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein

Shel Silverstein wrote a vast collection of poems comprised in his book Where the Sidewalk Ends. There is no main plot line for the whole book, only that there are many different poems to read. The book’s Lexile reading level is classified as NP, or non-prose. It has this classification simply because the book is comprised mainly of poems, and most of the text in the book is never in complete sentences. This book is a childhood classic for many students, so I feel like it has great benefits when added to the classroom setting. In my classroom, we could read one poem at the beginning of each day. Students could analyze that poem to figure out what type of poem it is and what its meaning might be. This would be something we could enjoy doing throughout the school year! From this, students could also practice writing their own poems in their writing journals.

A Lovely Debut Poem Collection Worth Reading
Our Numbered Days - Neil Hilborn

I knew I had to talk to her.

I asked her out six times.

In thirty seconds. She said yes

after the third one, but none of them

felt right so I had to keep going.

 

Here is a debut collection from Neil Hilborn's Our Numbered Days, a raw perspective of what we thought and knew about love, is rarely that simple. It's a funny and sad, crazy but make sense and what we love is likely a poor choice without us knowing it. His famous OCD is included along with JoeyHere and AwayFuture Tense. There is so much to love about this debut collection, and if you have heard about Neil Hilborn from his poetry slam performances or from Button Poetry or if you haven't heard about him at all, pick this up.

 

p/s: It's a rarity that I can smile while reading this poem and that means its good.

Where the Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein

This book is great to teach on poems and they are easy to annotate. The Lexile is NP on the Lexile level, it wouuld be best for older grades to me.
