This document includes six centers designed to help students review poetry related Common Core standards.
To use, print the entire document. It is recommended to print the instruction sheets and sorting cards on card stock for reuse. Cut all of the sorting cards and secure them with a rubber band. Then, put the rubber banded sorting cards and the instruction sheet in a manila envelope. Label the outside of the envelope with the station number. Center 5 will also require that the students have access to some poetry books.
Before students begin rotating through the centers, they will need a sheet of notebook paper to record their extended practice responses. Students will need approximately ten minutes to complete each station.
