It’s the end of the year – just a few more days to go, and the kids are driving you nuts. I hear ya! Grades have to be in, so you feel like you are babysitting those last few days. All that the kids are thinking about is summer, and they have no intention of reading or writing another assignment. You are burnt out too, and the thought of reading and grading another journal is too much to bear. Never fear! This task will get the students working on something they enjoy . . . music. Plus, it is a hands-on activity to keep them busy while also covering curriculum. It is not a boring worksheet! Students will not only find poetic devices in their favorite songs, but they will also create a hands-on product used to engage and review. Optional suggestions are also included.
Review simile, metaphor, hyperbole, allusion, personification, onomatopoeia, slant rhyme, alliteration, end rhyme, and internal rhyme with a challenging, yet fun activity.
If you own my Sub Plans for Middle and High School English set #1, you will NOT need this End of Year Engaging Activity. This activity is included in those sub plans.
