This package includes a collection of my monthly Mystery Poems & Response Sheets. It currently includes 57 poems and response sheets. The poems are filled with facts and the topic is a mystery item for students to figure out as they read. The response sheets include areas for students to solve the mystery with a drawing, find rhyming word pairs from the poem, color code the text to find answers, and lines for one written response. If the students need help figuring out the mystery item, the answer is scrambled upside down at the bottom of the page.
