The 2007 Revised Curriculum in Korean is a genre-based curriculum, that needs more studies on types and functions of several different texts. I focused on humorous verse that is very important in the elementary school but not studied at all in Korea. Children prefer the poetry that has humor and concrete experience, and the children`s preferences should be considered first in selecting poetry for teaching in school. Humorous verse is the poetry where a poet makes some poetic formation and shape for fun. I categorized humorous verse into two groups. One group of humorous verse doesn`t have reference and the other has it. Humorous verse that doesn`t have reference uses word play and pun to make readers have fun. Humorous verse that has reference uses gentle spoofs by manipulating context or narrater, and creates new creatures or events that is not possible in reality. More studies on the humorous verse needs to be succeeded to get this poetry employed properly and effectively in school.
