Looking for poems that will make your students laugh or teach important life lessons about kindness and manners? This poetry is one of three poetry studies I created to help my students dive into poetry.
This study is focused around fifth and sixth grade level poetry. It includes the 6 poems listed below:
1) Drop a Pebble in the Water
2) The First Snow
3) Grandpapa's Spectacles
5) The Pup
6) The Trial of Derek Drew
After each poem, I have included at least 5 rigorous multiple choice questions aligned with the following 5th grade Common Core State Standards:
RL.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
RL.5.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize the text.
RL.5.3 Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact).
RL.5.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.
