The poem works as quite a simple tongue twister, with the advantage of actually meaning something!

So the steps could be:
listen to the reading
listen and follow the words
read aloud a few times to perfect pronunciation
dictionary work to check meaning
writing the verse out with appropriate punctuation

This short poem is playful in its use of short words with similar sounds, ans of quite graphic vernacular!
It is unpunctuated

A more able class might try to write other short texts based on alliteration or assonance
