Thanks for checking out my Robert Louis Stevenson 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 Stevenson. Knowing the story behind the poet’s life will help students understand the purpose and tone. Also included are 6 poems written by Stevenson. These poems are intended for 4th – 6th graders – they require a little bit of close reading, but not so much to go over these students’ heads. Poems included are (1) "Swing" (2) "The Land of Nod" (3) "Pirates" (4) “Marching Song” (5) “Land of Counterpane” and (6) “The Wind.”
Each poem comes with specific poetic analysis questions that are on the same page as the poem, making it easy for students to look back to find their answers. Also included is a Poem and Reflection journal project. Half sheet writing reflections go along with each provided poem and super easy directions to have your students create their reflection booklets.
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.
These also make great sub plans!
