These are 34 Poetry Task Cards that each reinforces Common Core poetry skills in the 6-12 classroom. Each card features a term, the definition, an example, and an individual task for the student! All you need to do is provide each student with one card and give the class at least ten minutes to complete the task. Your students will love these tasks which require everything from thinking of rhyming words to completing a simile to singing a familiar song!
These cards can be used over and over, and students should receive a new task each time you greet them with a card. Five specific ways to use these poetry task cards are explained in detail, but remember that they are great as bell ringers, test review, or even public speaking practice and small group skills.
