In one week using the poem, The Road
Not Taken by Robert Frost, students read
and respond; study vocabulary, spelling, parts of speech,
and figurative language; and perform the poem with
expression and movement.
This simple poetry log requires students
to log the title and author of poems and to write a short
response. This 2 page file comes with instructions and 12
guiding questions for written reading responses to poetry.
There is room on the poetry log for three poem titles, plus
a short response.
