You asked for this and you got it! Presenting after much hoopla…
My most complete unit that uses poetry to teach figurative language ever! With this purchase you get, guided notes, graphic organizers, poems, mini-skill assessments, summative assessments, and writing tasks. And that is not all. You also get Teacher’s Keys and a new car…Sorry just kidding about the new car… In all seriousness though, I have included in my preview pages all the teacher's pages so you can really look at this to make an informed decision.
How Do I use this in the Classroom you ask? Using these materials to teach figurative language through the genre of poetry should be as simple as 1,2, 3. It all begins with the opening sets of guided notes that are included. Begin your lesson with the parts of a poem and progress through all the areas of figurative language. These notes are perfect to put in interactive notebooks or into a power point that you have created to help students focus on the content that is important. Then have students apply this vocabulary knowledge to kid friendly poems that will make them laugh, smile, and think.
This is over 50 pages of resources to teach figurative language through poetry in a step by step sequential manner. With your purchase you will receive:

In the words of a common idiomatic expression ...This is a "wash and go" product. Print what you need, set it up, and watch as your students explore and learn with your guidance!
Purchased separately this is at least a $15.00 value.... but this is bigger, better, and all together in one spot!
