The first grade students began class with a discussion about Shel Silverstein. We talked about who he was, and some of his poems, stories, and illustrations that we recognized. Then, we watched an animation of his poem Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too. We talked about how the illustrations were all done in black and white outlines. To mimic this look, each student got to draw their own version of the poem then traced their pencil lines in permanent marker.
