SummaryThis is a combined collection of funny poems about being in school. Each poem addresses a new fear, cliche', or experience throughout an "average" day in the life of a student.ReactionI would love to read some of these poems aloud in my classes! I really do think some of them are hilarious! It would be a really good story to read on the first day because it would give the students an opportunity to laugh about their own fears like standing in front of a class to speak, or needing to use the restroom really badly.ReactionHave the students journal about their fears and jitters on the first day of school, and then save them. Let the students reflect on their entries during the last few days of the same school year.Ask each student to write a funny poem about school, and then put them all together as your own "collection."
