Since April is National Poetry Month, my students and I did a wide range of activities related to the topic of poetry. I was running a little behind schedule, so I was disappoint to learn that my favorite Custard the Dragon book was checked out at the library. They did have, however, another version entitled Custard the Dragon and the Wicked Knight.
I did like this poem/book, but not nearly as well as The Tale of Custard the Dragon. Despite my stumbling through the oral reading of this book to my students, they sat captivated (but would be too cool to ever admit it). For many, it was one of their favorite poems that we read together.
