This packet includes an original poem called "I Believe in You" and four printables to accompany it. The poem was written to motivate and inspire students. This is a great way to get your year off to a positive start, and to get to know your students. The poem can be referred to throughout the year.
Included are four printables, the first focuses on poem structure and vocabulary, the second on comprehension and close reading, and the third and fourth are meant for students to write what they believe about themselves and to write their own poem.
This is my first venture into the wonderful world of TPT, after years of teaching and writing poetry for students and colleagues.
I appreciate any comments or suggestions, and am still learning the process. I am still figuring out technology, but more to come! Thank- You!
