A PowerPoint Super Pack, especially designed for students who find poetry difficult to write or teachers who find it difficult to teach, this resource makes writing poetry easy and fun. Four PowerPoints, featuring Ms. Hernandez (Ms. H) and Helping Girl, provide a structure that you can build your lessons around. A journal insert provides 64 simile and metaphor “starters” to stimulate ideas. Two additional PowerPoints teach your students how to use the games and the graphic organizer provided in the resource. These help your students develop their ideas into finished products.
The lesson objective is the completion of at least two original poems; one nonsense poem and one with a main idea. The focus of the lesson is basic poetry: quatrains and couplets that rhyme and employ at least one simile or metaphor. Of course, if your students want to write more than two poems or if they want to start using similes and metaphors in their essays, who would object to that?
