This pack includes a set of 8 back to school themed poems. A language arts follow up activity page accompanies each poem. This follow up requires students to locate words or evidence in the poem’s text to answer questions. Word work skills assessed include: antonyms, synonyms, syllabication, abc order, context clues, multiple meanings, affixes. Comprehension skills assessed include: making inferences, sequencing, author’s purpose, cause/effect and drawing conclusions.
As a bonus, along with the poems, I have included a math problem solving or graphing pages that correlate to the poems.
**Second and Fourth Grade Pro Poems for those who teach in those grades.
