Add PIZZAZZ to your poetry unit!
This resource includes 78 printable pages that can be used to launch poetry centers in your classroom as each skill/strategy is introduced through a mini-lesson. The centers are designed to reteach and reinforce. ALSO...the resources could also easily be adapted to use with your whole class as a guided activity!
If applicable, most of the direction sheets match up with recording sheets for reflection. Each center was created to address the Common Core Standards in a Readers Workshop friendly way, with special attention paid to the author's craft, fluency, poetic devices, and teaching my students to be reflective, strategic learners! :)
* This does not include a collection of poems due to copyrights!
I have edited the file to include a suggested list of books/poems as a
starting point for 3rd/4th grade kiddos, though this unit can be used
with other texts for different grade levels. They are JUST
suggestions. Other texts can be used to meet your students' needs.
