If you assign weekly independent reading along with a reading log, this is a great tool to use while completing a poetry unit in class. By using this worksheet, students are expected to keep track of their daily reading by putting down the page numbers read that day. Then students need to complete the reading log by looking for examples of figurative language in their independent reading. On the back, students are given the option to complete either a biography poem of a character from their book or answer questions about a poem that they read of their choice. While completing a poetry unit, I usually have a cart of poetry books students are allowed to read during silent reading time.
