What teachers are saying about using this poetry annotation resource: 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was such a good resource for my Writing Comp students! It worked really well and kept my kiddos engaged! Will definitely use again next year!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Used this in pairing with an EngageNY Unit, and this was a great and visually appealing review resource for my high school students. Thank you!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I used these before I started a poetry unit with my class. The best thing about them is the examples provided. The examples made the definitions much clearer and helped my students understand the terms. The examples are also clever.
