♥ 100% Perfect.

♥ I love how you broke the poem apart and it requires the students to really look back at the text. Great product!

♥ Thank you so much for this product. I love the close reading structure & questions. I also love the vocabulary sheet. That is exactly what I wanted to create, and now I don't have to. Kids love figuring out rhyme scheme, so that is a bonus to help the students have success and feel good about poetry. Love it. :)

♥ What a great resource to connect literature and history!
