This is a packet including a number of PARCC like poems I found when researching. 3 poems have 4 - 5 questions aligning to the common core state curriculum, formatted similarly to how some questions may appear. Poems refer to themes such as compassion, peace, kindness, never giving up, and perseverance.

There is also a text with a similar theme as a poem to use for either comparing or explaining how both have similar themes. There are 3 large writing pieces referring back to the poems and the passage aligning with central message/theme. Thinking maps and graphic organizers are used and referenced, as well.

Additional poems are provided for additional use.
