Product Description
Do you still want to teach poetry, but Common Core has made it tougher to do so? Never fear! You can base your poetry writing off of textual evidence found in the novel, House on Mango Street!

In this activity, students list quotes relating to 3 areas of Esperanza's life. They then use those as a basis for constructing a whole-class "Where I'm From" poem for Esperanza!

This idea is based off of George Ella Lyon's "Where I'm From" Poem though referencing that poem is not at all needed for this activity.

Included are:
A quote-collection worksheet
A sentence strip template (optional)
Activity Instructions with an example
A sentence frame page with 2 basic "Where I'm From" Templates (and 13 template use examples).
