Use the poem to teach Think Aloud and Close Reading.
Read the first stanza aloud once and then read it again by modeling a Think Aloud. Make sure to show students how to highlight and make notes below.
Have the students partner up and take turns. Partner A reads the stanza while doing a Think Aloud while Partner B makes notes below of what their partner said. Then switch until the poem is complete.
