This pack includes all 20 of the "Close Reads Using Lyrics!" This is a fantastic way to introduce your kiddos to poetry that they will LOVE! The songs included will allow students to think deeply using the questions that are based on each song, as well as to further their understanding of how to pick text apart. There's enough included to last the entire year!

Each packet Song lyrics, 8 close reading questions, and theme/author's purpose/analyzing text graphic organizers are all included with this guide.

The lyrics, the metaphors, and the overall theme of these songs will create conversation with your students which will have them thinking deeply while reading and listening to the lyrics.
