Product Description
Help students learn to analyze Ernest Lawrence Thayer’s poem, “Casey at the Bat” with this task card set and so much more. This poem is on the 4th & 5th grade CCSS ELA Text Exemplar list. Students read the poem and respond to prompts on 12 task cards citing evidence from the text in their foldable booklet that prints using only 3 sheets of paper. This makes a great center activity or class lesson.

For teachers, I’ve included a brief summary of the poem, teacher tips and notes, and suggested web links to the poems online plus video or audio links so students can hear the rhythm of the poetry. Also included are “I Can” statements for Common Core 4th & 5th grade ELA ready to print and hang up on your bulletin board. In addition to the task cards, each poem has a one-page “Meet the Author” page and Acrostic Poem worksheets. These make a great extension or center activity for differentiation.
