Product Description

This poem is about how it's important to be thankful for everything in life, even the bad things that happen. It's a great poem about perspective.

This worksheet asks students to:

-annotate the poem for meaning

-use evidence to determine the poem's tone and theme

-interpret the meaning of some of the lines

-explain how they can apply this poem's theme into their lives

-use the poem as a model text to write a poem like it with the same themes

Teaching Tip:

After students write their own poem about gratitude, have them share their favorite line/stanza with the class. Put them all together to create your own class gratitude poem. Students can rank their favorite lines and connect the ones that are similar. I love sharing these as a class. It's a very positive experience for everyone.
