Dr. Seuss' IEP's.....Do you like these IEPs
(Rhythm from Green Eggs & Ham)
Do you like these IEPs?
I do not like these IEPs I do not like them, Geez Louise We test, we check We Plan, we meet But nothing ever seems complete
Would you, could you like the form?
I do not like the form I see Not page 1, not 2, not 3 Another change A brand New box I think we all Have lost our rocks
Could you all meet her or there?
We could not all meet here or there We cannot all fit anywhere! Not in a room Not in the hall There seems to be no space at all
Would you, could you meet again?
I cannot meet again next week No lunch, no prep Please hear me speak No not at dusk, No not at dawn At 4 p.m. I should be gone
Could you hear while all speak out? Would you write the words they spout?
I could not hear, I would not write This does not need to be a fight Sign here, date there Mark this, check that Beware the student’s ad-vo-cat(e)
You do not like them So you say Try again, try again! And you may
If you will let me be I will try again You’ll see
I almost like these IEPs! I think I’ll write 6,000 and 3 And I will practice day and night Until they say “You’ve got it right!”
