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)"

or

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.
