Teaching Polygons with Poems

I start the class with a silly personal polygon poem

"There was a girl named poly.
Poly, poly-o-gon.
Of her forms were many,
and now they all are gone
Tri, quad, penta, hex, hempta...
octa, non-DECA!!"

Wait till you see the silly things your kids will write about (Have them stand on their chairs to read it).
