Reflection: Lesson Planning Poetry: Focus on Rhyme and Inference - Section 3: Comprehension Check


Keep those students who tend to finish fast challenge and focused by making this worksheet available. They can use it to respond to an interesting poem found among the collection of poetry books in the class library. The completed responses are then ready to share with a peer, who may or may not have read the same poem. You may want to set certain guidelines, such as the number lines or the number of poems that can be chosen by the same author. Otherwise, you may end up with reams of responses to couplets or one hundred responses to Shel Silverstein poems- still a favorite at this age.
