Using poetry in your classroom is a great way to build comprehension, critical thinking, analysis, and fluency skills. Poetry can also be used as a mentor text in writing to teach “show, don’t tell,” figurative language and grammar skills. You can get a lot of bang for your buck from a poem!
Pausing for Poetry is a great way to incorporate poetry into your classroom every day in a small amount of time (about 10 minutes)!

* Three different weekly response sheets
