18 Original Poems and 4 Poetry Comprehension Task Cards for each poem! Engage your students in learning about poetry with these fun poems and task cards.
The poems offer a range of different topics and rhythm and rhyme schemes and are intended for poetry comprehension practice. The poems and comprehension questions range in complexity making it easy to differentiate.
A wide variety of figurative language is used as well as inference and references that require students to draw conclusions. These poetry task cards will challenge your students to truly think about poems!
Each poem is presented on a half page and the task cards are a quarter page. You can shrink them while printing to fit the poem and task cards on one piece of notebook paper! Due to the format of a poem, I wasn't able to fit the poems and questions on one half-page task card. I sure did try, though! :)
Please Note: These are original poems. Due to copyright concerns, poems by popular authors can't be included or referenced. I hope you and your students enjoy these fun (and occasionally insightful) poems!
