Description

Teach poetry analysis with confidence and save money using these poetry mini units for all 9 poems on the 4th & 5th grade CCSS ELA Text Exemplar list. Task cards, teacher background, notes and answer keys, poem summaries, poet biography, student recording booklets, this set has it ALL! I've done the hard work researching and learning the poem for you! You get to do the fun part!

You can set up poetry centers, use these with small groups, with guided reading groups, or as whole class instruction. There's so many options with this set.

Structure For Use - Choose the Duration and Speed That Works Best for YOU:

  • Teach one poet and poem each month of the year.
  • Read the poem and focus on one poetry analysis question a day
  • Set up a center or rotation with 3-4 tables with a task card on each table. Have students rotate to tables and discuss the question.
  • Teach a 1-2 week intensive unit surrounding the poet and poem. Use the poem each day for 12 days.
  • Teach the poet and poem in a week

What's Included? Each Poem Has:

  • 12 task cards with questions and answers keys,
  • Student response booklet for recording and citing evidence from the text (designed to print back-to-back using only 3 sheets of paper)
  • Summary explanation of the poem with notes for the teacher
  • Poet biography "Meet the Author" - one page summary
  • Acrostic Poem worksheets

Your purchase includes the password to my poetry analysis web link collection. I’ve found online sources for you for each poem to build background knowledge, learn about the poet's life, watch videos, listen to audio links, read the poem online, and more.

Also included are “I Can” statements for 4th and 5th grade Common Core in student language ready to print and hang up on your concept or focus wall.

“Casey at the Bat” by Ernest Lawrence Thayer

I do not believe these four poems are in the public domain, therefore due to copyright laws, I can’t include them in this set, but I have included links to websites where you might find them online.
