Inferential thinking is the key to comprehension and reading mastery, so this poem challenges students to draw conclusions from the many hints as to just what the item is. Written in the first person, the use of personification makes this poem delightful, motivating and truly engaging. As with everything I have on TPT, it has been kid-tested and is sure to please. The item is a clock, but that word is mentioned nowhere in the poem! Enjoy!
