This poem was written with 4th graders in mind, but it can be used with more advanced third graders or weaker fifth grade readers. Please use your best judgement.
This pack includes a short close reading poem about candy corn and Halloween. The poem is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue into an interactive reading notebookk. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage.
In addition to the poem, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of savor, one focuses on 4 questions related to the poem, and one focuses on listing other facts learned not asked about in the 4 questions.
Some of the fun facts included in the poem are things like the # of candy corn made per year, top selling candy for Halloween, candy corn made in a mold, takes 5 days, invented in 1880.... and more.
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
