The poem, "in the theater," describes a movie theater using some of the 5 senses. The lesson includes text dependent questions and "think alouds" to help cover the Common Core Standards.
This would be a great addition to a 5 senses unit, for a mental images unit in reading workshop, or simply to practice the close reading strategy with young readers.
