PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students analyze the poem "A Day" by Emily Dickinson and write their own companion poem. Students use literary analysis skills and examine the vivid details that make this poem so beautiful.

By writing their own "companion" poems that follow the same format at the original, students dig deeper into the poem's construction, practice using figures of speech, and experiment with rhythm and rhyme.

I love this poem and lesson for so many reasons! The poem is a wonderful gem that looks at the sunrise and sunset of a day. Students write their own "I'll Tell You..." poems that describe an ordinary observation that is extraordinary.

I just love teaching Emily Dickinson poems! They are treasures!
