PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core Language and Reading Practice Using Song Lyrics: "Roar" by Katy Perry

This IS included in Poetry Resources Bundle, Volume 2.

This activity uses popular song lyrics ("Roar" By Katy Perry, written by Bonnie McKee) to practice figurative language & poetic devices. It also includes exercises for students to analyze tone/mood and how the devices contribute to the overall meaning. *NEWLY ADDED (Feb. 26, 2014): Activities for analyzing word connotations (negative and positive connotative words/diction), syntax, and imagery.

In addition, it compares the song to two poems with similar themes. One by Edgar Lee Masters from his Spoon River Anthology and another by Edgar Guest. All activities are differentiated for multiple levels of learners.

Includes separate student handouts in editable format (Microsoft Word) that can be shared electronically (posted for students on secure server or emailed). Perfect for 1:1. ALL handouts come in PDF format, as well. Teacher's answer key included.

I knew I wanted to use music to teach about figurative language in my special education language arts class, but I wasn't sure how to go about it. This lesson was exactly what I needed! There is so much here, which can be put together in different ways depending on exactly what you need. I didn't use everything this time around, but I'm likely to go back and use other parts (or get inspiration from them) at other times in the year and with other classes. I'm also going to look up this teacher's other lesson!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  January 30, 2014,  Tricia C. asked:
You have this product rated for 8th grade and up. Is it too advanced for 5th graders? I think they would love the song aspect since it is a popular song right now.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 30, 2014Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Tbcain - Some of the figurative language and poetic devices will probably be too difficult for them to find, but I do think they could find some of the examples that are easier. I'm not sure how much use you would get out of the poem comparison (I have two samples I use to compare with the song). The final activity is more creative and has students writing about their own "roars," and I think your 5th graders would enjoy that. Thanks so much for your interest! -Tracee
n/a
On  October 10, 2013,  Kimberly S. asked:
How appropriate would this product be for 6th graders? We have used your "Firework" product earlier this year. It was a little challenging for a few of them, and we did about 1/3 of it as a class together.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 10, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Thanks for your inquiry! It is probably about as challenging as "Firework," though I do include differentiated handouts that would definitely work with your students. Of the two poems I included for supplemental text, one is much easier to read/understand than the other. I hope that helps & hope your students enjoy it! -Tracee
On  September 8, 2013Juggling ELA  (TpT Seller) asked:

On  September 8, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
No - I only have one Poetry bundle and I stopped adding to it when it became too large (about two years ago). I no longer sell my CDs. Thanks for your inquiry! ;)
