I like this poem because it shows the idea of using different mediums to teach content. It reminds me on the current even raps that we listened to in class. Because of the rhyme scheme, and the fun nature of this tool, that content that the poem demonstrates is likely to be internalized by the students. It can also be added to my repertoire of transitional songs that create learning opportunities even in the down time.
