Hispanic Poets: One-Page Reading Passages

 Hispanic Poets: One-Page Reading Passages

So much going on this week! Earth Day, Save the Frogs Day, and more.

But first, a reminder that we are in the middle of National Poetry Month. I already shared a reading passage for our former U.S. Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera

Today, I wanted to share this packet of notable Hispanic Poets from around the world. 

It features seven remarkable and prolific poets in world history. They are:

  1. Pablo Neruda
  2. Gabriela Mistral
  3. José Martí
  4. Julia de Burgos
  5. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
  6. Federico García Lorca
  7. Juan Felipe Herrera
This comprehensive packet is very similar to my 10 Latinas in History and Afro-Latinos in History packets. Each poet featured in a one-page reading passage and includes a multiple choice comprehension quiz. 

There are additional review sheets and pages for researching and essay writing. There is also a recommended reading list of children's books that feature each poet. The packet is 41 pages in all. 

At this moment, it is only available in English. A Spanish version will be made available this summer.

So if you're looking for a resource to celebrate National Poetry Month in a way that examines poets who are often overlooked in most poetry lessons, I hope you give this a try.

I also recommend the Highlights Book of Things to Write. It includes over 175 creative writing topics for kids, open-ended questions, games, activities and more.

Open-ended writing prompts invite kids to explore their world. Word games, writing tips and how-to’s show them new ways to put their thoughts into words. They’ll also explore how to create characters, write short stories, try out various styles of poetry, write about the things they care about, and so much more.
