I missed the original post but in searching for lessons for Poetry Month came upon 
this site with several "poetry theater" selections appropriate for upper elementary.

Here are the poems for two voices.  The list is short, but there are
some good books here.


Susan Voracek

Poems for Two Voices

Mary Ann Hoberman has 3 books "You Read to Me, I'll Read to You"
very short stories, very short Mother Goose Tales to read together and
very short fairy tales to read together

There is a very short poem by Myra Cohn Livingston in her book, There
Was a Place and
Other Poems, called "In the Middle". It is a dialogue between divorced
parents and the child caught in the middle. It might work also.

Paul Fleischman has 3 books:  I am Phoenix, Joyful Noise, and Big Talk
for four voices

Grimes, Nikki. What is goodbye?: Poems on Grief. New York: Jump at the
Sun/Hyperion Books for Children, 2004, 64 p.  Alternating poems by a
brother and sister convey their feelings about the death of their older
brother and the impact it had on their family.

Take Me Out of the Bathtub By Alan Katz - this are songs not poems.
But my own kids and my students love to perform these.
