Thanks for checking out my Robert Frost Author Study and Poem Analysis Packet. So many students (and teachers) shy away from poetry, because they don’t know what to do with it. Well, this packet is designed to help teachers teach and students understand.
You will find a short bio on Robert Frost. Knowing the story behind the poet’s life will help students understand the purpose and tone. Also included are 6 poems written by Robert Frost. These poems are intended for 5th – 8th graders – they require a little bit of close reading, but not so much to go over these students’ heads. Poems included are (1) “The Last Word of a Bluebird” (2) “A Patch of Old Snow” (3) an excerpt from “Birches” (4) “A Time to Talk” (5) “The Road Not Taken” and (6) “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”
Analysis of poems can be used for CLOSE reading activity. Students will need to identify author’s purpose and tone, theme, general understanding of content, literary terms (personification, similes, metaphors, imagery, stanzas, rhyme), and write personal reflections.
