The poem - My Family is Nuts - refers to characteristics of family members as specific nuts. For example the poet (ME) uses the cashews, brazilian, walnut, peanut and almond to characterise personality traits of her family members. Students are asked to analyse the poem using inferring skills to infer what each character of the family is like. Students identify personality traits and write clues from the text in response to their inferring.
Enjoy! I would love your feedback!
