In the Classroom

Poetry and riddles come alive through Jean Marziollo's easy to follow steps. Begin with an author study, and analyze the books and riddles written by Jean Marzollo. Follow the step-by-step instructions for student riddle success. Students will learn about the rhythm, rhyme scheme, alliteration, and punctuation of these poetry riddles. Create a class book with Bookemon, reviewed here, or a Prezi, reviewed here, to share your students' creative ventures. Be sure to add links to your students' work on your class website. Share your poems with other classes in your school by displaying them outside your room. Organize a poetry evening featuring this form of poetry. In content area subjects, create riddles for special topics, charts, and diagrams to help students remember terms and concepts. For instance, challenge students to create a riddle poem about the diagram of a microscope or parts of a cell. Examine Marzollo's short autobiography and have students create an autobiography for themselves to go along with their poems.
