PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a resource to help teach understanding and analyzing poetry and poetry comprehension. This does not teach the different types of poems and it does not teach students how to write poetry. This resource was designed to meet the common core standards that require the students to understand, comprehend, and analyze poetry.

Click here to check out my Reading Units Bundle for 4th and 5th Grade that includes this resource and SEVEN other resources.

I have included many resources for you to use as you teach a poetry unit. I created this with the new common core standards in mind so I hope you will find that it aligns very well with the standards. I wrote this with the 5th grade standards in mind, however this will work well with advanced 4th graders or struggling 6th graders.

Skills in this resource include:
~determining the theme of a poem
~summarizing poems
~making and supporting inferences
~figurative language
~determining word meaning
~understanding how stanzas support overall structure of a poem
~analyzing the speaker of a poem and how it affects how the poem is written.

Here is what is included:
1. Color and Black and White Posters to post the objectives and key understandings of the unit.
2. Essential Questions for each 5th grade CCSS that addresses poetry.
3. Generic Printables and Graphic Organizers for the students to apply the skills of the standards to any poem.
4. Close Reading of Poetry: Resources to practice close reading strategies for the poems in the unit and other poems.
5. Seven poems with text dependent questions and answer keys
