Product Description
In the Battle of Memories, students will read and analyze “maggie and milly and molly and may” and “who are you, little i” by E.E. Cummings. After comparing the two poems, students will vote on which poem they think is best by writing a poetry evaluation. There are two levels of activities/questions included—Levels 1 & 2. In addition, there are four levels of voting templates included, so you can choose based on your students’ writing abilities!
