The PDF is ready to use with Google classroom, and the format is appropriate to use with Chromebooks or iPads. However, if you don't have access to these resources, you can easily print this out with two pages on one sheet of paper (4 if you use front and back), to make it ready for your class (and the poem itself with the guided reading questions is perfect to use with a substitute).
