Preschoolers are very observant and always learning. Many Shel Silverstein poems coupled with their interesting illustrations can aid students in developing and strengthening their critical thinking skills.
At story time, consider reading a Shel Silverstein poem to your students but be sure to read it so that the illustration for the poem is visible. Many of Silverstein’s poems have illustrations that explain something or make the poem complete. For example:

Showing this illustration and reading the poem not only makes it funny and exciting for students, but it also completes the poem and allows children to make the connection between what the subject is doing wrong and what the poem describes. You can extend this by asking probing questions such as “why didn’t the carrots help his eyesight?” or “how are carrots good for you?”
Times shown are Pacific Standard Time. If you are in Central or Eastern Time, you will need to adjust the time accordingly.
