This short but sweet poem provides a great reminder of all the items beachgoers need for a relaxing day! Students in grades 1-4 can practice sequencing, setting, transformation, or body object skills. In addition, students may choose to imagine how each item is used at the beach, practicing their imagination and playwriting skills through continuing the story. We have also included some recommended step-by-step delivery ideas to help you turn the poem into a full lesson.
To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For each poem, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses.
