Description

There is no reason for your students to dread poetry anymore! The Poetry: Close Reading and Annotation Posters, Handouts, and Bookmarks Packet includes wonderful resources to assist your students in performing close reading of poetry. Students will not only learn how to annotate poetry, they will also learn what information to look for as they read.

This is the poetry version of the popular Close Read and Annotation Poster and Bookmark Pack.

***PLEASE NOTE: This product is included in Poetry: Close Reading Step by Step Strategies for Success
If you would like poems and annotations, they are included in the other unit. Please do not purchase both products.***

Teaching students how to read closely empowers them to become independent learners, and for this reason it is the first two words of the Common Core K-12 Anchor Standards:
*CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

The posters can be laminated and placed on display to serve as reminders about the key components of the close read. They can also be distributed, along with the handouts, for students to use as a source of reference.

The bookmarks can be printed back-to-back and can be used until students become accustomed to annotating. They can also be laminated, and they will print five to a page.

The handouts are designed so that they can easily be trimmed to fit into a marble composition book, so if you are using an interactive notebook, your students will have some helpful poetry and annotation notes.

I have provided options for individualizing as well, because some students prefer coming up with their own symbols.

I find that annotating text is amazing for students who have problems focusing and paying attention. It keeps students focused, because it requires them to stay actively involved with the text. Annotating makes it difficult for them to drift off. It also enables the teacher to easily monitor attention issues and reading progress, simply by checking on the student’s annotations.
