Product Description
This is such a charming poem! It is a favorite every year in my class! Students love the understated romance as a young boy ventures on his first "date" with a smiling girl. You will love the symbolism throughout the poem. Soto explores the joyful side of growing up through symbolism, understatement, and beautiful imagery. I have included here the poem, of course, and questions and graphic organizers that guide students as they make inferences and discover the power of symbols! After reading and discussing the poem, I have my students work with a partner. (Note: This poem is also in my LA7 Poetry Packet.)
