This product contains an analysis activity and a memorization assessment for 11 poems. I have my students memorize one poem a month. We begin the month by analyzing the poem with the worksheet provided and then on the last day of the month, students take the assessment. The assessment has a blank for each word in the poem, with some of the words filled in. There is also a question about the theme of the poem. This is a great way for students to look closely at poetry. It also helps them with their fluency. Both the analysis worksheet and the memorization assessment are included. This product does not have to be a monthly activity. It would be an excellent poetry unit as well.
Some of the poems included are:
"Mother to Son"
"O Captain, My Captain"
"The Road Not Take"
"Do Not Go Gentle"
"There is no Frigate Like a Book"
