Product Description
This POETRY packet is perfect for reinforcing comprehension and for bringing FLUENCY fun into your classroom during the Thanksgiving season!

Students can work in pairs to read the included {Partner Perspective} poem, "Turkey Troubles!", focusing on different voices and character points of view. Students will love the back-and-forth structure of the poem and changing their voices to match the expression of the hunter and turkey characters.

There are three follow-up activities to support their comprehension: "Visualizing Perspectives" "Turkey Fact Circles," and "Comic Strip Retelling." Use the activities in a Literacy Center or as part of your ELA block. They're even great for sending home!

**This packet includes a vocabulary sheet and evidence-based question sheets at two different levels to reinforce CCSS text-response skills. Students can practice using evidence from the text to support their thinking!**

A highlighted “Readers Theater” script format is also included for easier tracking while reading!
