We've been working with Catalog Verse in Room 407. You might recognize this type of poem if you've ever listened to:
"My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music
Paul Simon "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover"
REM "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)"
Billy Joel "We Didn't Start the Fire"
For the classroom library, two poetry collections come to mind:
Georgia Heard's Falling Down the Page: A Book of List Poems
Selections from Deborah Ruddell's The Popcorn Astronauts
Of course, Shel Silverstein works here very nicely as a mentor text for list poems.
