Dr. Seuss’s IEPAuthor Unknown
Do you like these IEP’s
I do not like these IEP’s
I do not like them, geeze Louise
We test, we check
We plan, we meet
But nothing ever seems complete
Would you, could you
Like this form?
I do not like the form I see
Not page 1, not 2, not 3
And brand new box
I think we all have lost our rocks
Could you all meet here or there?
We could not all meet here or there
We could not all fit anywhere!
Not in a room
Not in the hall
There seems to be no place 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 pm 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 ad-vo-cat(e)
You do not like them
So you say
Try again, try again!
And you may
I almost like these IEP’s!
I think I’ll write six thousand three.
And I will practice day and night
Until they say
“You’ve Got it Right!!”
