    On your own
    On Your Own:

    • Divide your paper into quarters and number the four sections (1, 2, 3, 4).

    • Read the poem silently to yourself. Then, in box #1, write down what the poem makes you think of/how it makes you feel. Does it remind you of anything else that you’ve read?

    Now read the poem again
    Now read the poem again

    This time, circle 1 or 2 important words in each line—words that seem significant or that stand out to you for any reason.

    Re-read just those words, and then, in box #2, draw a picture (just a quick sketch) that expresses the feeling you get from those words. (This could be an abstract sketch or a picture of something that represents the feeling of the words.)

    Read the poem a third time

    • Re-read what you wrote in box #1. Then, in box #4, make a statement about your final thoughts on the poem. Have your first impressions changed? Or do you now have a better sense of how the poem created that initial impression you received from it?
