Oh, gee,

Were caught, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "Let us flee."
"Let us fly," said the flea.

"To kick off our unit, I partnered kids up and gave them each a poetry book and a sticky note. They had to come up with at least 3 things they noticed about poetry on the sticky note. Of course every group noticed that poetry can rhyme! But I got a lot of additional great answers which were later compiled into the chart" ~My Life as a 3rd Grade Teacher
