This product will scaffold students through the analysis of the poem to discover the theme of the poem "The Witch" by Jack Prelutsky.
With this powerpoint students will work on:
Vocabulary/ Dictionary Use
Open ended text to world questions
Writing about the theme
and much more.
When I use this powerpoint in my classroom, I allow the students to work in partners (or groups). I give the students copies of the poem and they annotate right on the poem. Depending on how advanced the students are with poetic terms, this activity could take 2 - 3 class periods (45 minutes per class period).
The poem is not included with this powerpoint because of copyright issues, however you should be able easily find a copy of the poem on the internet.
