Pick a psalm of life

  1. 1. A Psalm of Life Henry Wadsworth Longfellow In The Psalm of Life the life lesson that is taught is to live everyday to the fullest. I feel that it is important for children to understand that what they do with their lives is up to them. Consequently, it is up to them to start each day new and try and accomplish what will make them happy. This poem is a great way to get kids thinking about what they would like to do when they grow up. It is a good start to an occupations unit (Social studies). In addition, it could be used in a poetry unit. This can be accomplished through general poetry or an authors unit on Longfellow (Reading). I would use this piece in the grades of 4-6. I pick a higher grade for this piece because of its length and cognitive depth. It would be easier for the 4-6 graders to really recognize the importance of the message.
