⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Easy to incorporate into our poetry unit and included good examples for each of the poetic devices.” -Tami C.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I am so excited to use this resource with my students! Even though it is heavily tested in standardized tests, our curriculum does not have many poetry resources. This will be a great way to spark discussions and teach important concepts. Thank you for making it!” – Rose M. (Volume 1 review)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I loved this product! It allowed me to teach poetry without pain 🙂 Each poem was short, so my students were able to attend to the lesson and identify the terms without difficulty. There was also a nice variety of poems. Thanks!” – Barbara L. (Volume 1 review)
