This particular assessment focuses on reading and comprehending poetry and the figurative language that is often used withing. Questions assess understanding of author's use of language to help us visualize, context clues, and interpretation of figurative language. There is a matching Practice Worksheet also for sale in my store that can be used prior to giving this assessment.
I have a series of skill worksheets and matching assessments that I have created for my reading instruction. In general, I focus on one reading skill each week (this one being Poetry, Figurative Language) - after three days of mini-lessons, I give the kids the Practice Worksheet on Day 4 (see my store to purchase Practice Worksheets). They will be taking this graded Skill Assessment on Day 5 of each week.
