Product Description
Help students enjoy analyzing Pat Mora’s poem, “Words Free As Confetti” with this fun task card mini-unit set. This poem is on the 4th and 5th grade CCSS ELA Text Exemplar list. Students read the poem and respond to prompts on 12 task cards citing evidence from the text in their foldable booklet that prints using only 3 sheets of paper. This makes a great center activity or class lesson.

For teachers, I’ve included a brief summary of the poem, teacher tips and notes, and suggested web links to the poems online plus video or audio links so students can hear the rhythm of the poetry. Also included are “I Can” statements for Common Core 4th & 5th grade ELA ready to print and hang up on your bulletin board. In addition to the task cards, each poem has a one-page “Meet the Author” page and Acrostic Poem worksheets. These make a great extension or center activity for differentiation.

Your purchase includes the password to my poetry analysis web link collection for these poems. I’ve found online sources for you for each poem to build background knowledge, learn about the poet's life, watch videos, listen to audio links, read the poem online, and more.

There's 40 pages of NO PREP materials ready to help you teach and ENJOY poetry. 

Students will to cite evidence from the text in their response to these types of questions:
• Finding new vocabulary
• Determining word and passage meaning
• Determining mood
• Finding author’s point of view
• Determining the setting
• Analyzing the characters
• Finding sensory words that create imagery
• Author’s use of repetition
• Making inferences about the poem
• Text to self connections
• Text to world connections
• Citing evidence to provide descriptions
• Determining overall message and meaning
• Giving opinions
• Finding descriptive language

Materials Included (PDF format):
• Meet the Author
• Poem Summary & Teacher Notes
• Poem Vocabulary
• Website Links on www.mrsrenz.com to help you prepare to teach this poem
• What is Poetry

• Teacher Version of Task Card Questions & Answers
• Task Cards (easy on the ink in color) – Print 4 per page
• Task Card Answers – print 4 per page

While this set analyzes poems on the fourth grade Common Core Text Exemplar list, it would help students in other grades learn to analyze poems.

The student version of the poem is not included (copyright), but I’ve included links to websites where you can find the poem and a template to place the student version of the poem.
