Inspired by Grade ONEderful's Poetry Slam

The Aussies have have had it figured out for a while.
Sid the Seagull has a good-on-ya-mate jingle to help us remember to be safe in the sun.
Now the Poetry Slam.
On the increasingly rare occasion that we have a sunscreen June
we read this poem together.
I only had it on chart paper for group reading.
So, I made some individual reading versions.

Lots of white space and simple illustrations, so the kids can focus on the words.
Double spaces between words making it easier to track for beginning readers.
Friendly, easy to read font.
