Favorite Math Lesson - Smart by Shel Silverstein - Money

I love this lesson on the concept of the value of money.

I first found it on Busy Teachers Cafe.

The poem is there and a great worksheet that breaks down the poem. I found this wonderful class made video with Shel Silverstein's own narration of the poem.

My students loved discussing the poem and they got a chance to review the value of money as well.
