Product Description
These prompts give students practice reading and analyzing poems quickly. Each handout requires students to provide theme topics, theme statements, and text support for their responses. There are five poems and bell ringers that are perfect for the autumn and Thanksgiving season (these could last one week or five weeks depending on how you use them). If desired, use the varying difficulty of the poems to differentiate for student abilities and needs.

Poems included follow:
When the Frost is on the Punkin by James Whitcomb Riley
To Autumn by John Keats
Gratitude by Henry Van Dyke
Gratitude—is not the mention by Emily Dickinson
The Signs of the Times by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Two of these poems provide excellent practice with reading dialect, and the tones of the poems vary from reflective to humorous. Instructions for using the bell ringers and sample keys for each poem are provided in the resource. Furthermore, several suggestions are provided for using these handouts as other activities.
