Get your students motivated to learn about imagery and tone while reading some fun poems by Shel Silverstein! Worried about your ESL students? Have no fear! I have implemented the use of word webs and freewrites to allow them to work with their first language and now their second language. Giving them the option to write things down first will hopefully encourage them to share out in a large classroom! BONUS- If you know the student's (s') first language you can help him/her translate before speaking out OR allow another student who knows the student's (s') first language to help translate! This will also build classroom community and allow your ESL student(s) to feel encouraged!
Lesson plan includes:
One Inch Tall by Shel Silverstein
“What would you do if…” freewrite
Word Web template
“How are Imagery and Tone related? worksheet
I hope you have as much fun with this lesson as my students and I did!
