This massive 123-slide colorful poetry skills power point covers the study of 12 lessons on poetry skills.
Each lesson is independent of the other lessons.
You can decide to use them in a poetry unit study or as individual lessons. You can also choose which lessons to teach.
Each “lesson” has three parts: instruction, examples, and problems for students.
(Students will need paper and pencil for the lessons.)
Each set of slides that have the same background are for one lesson.
HERE'S A BONUS! I'VE DECIDED TO INCLUDE 2 MORE OF MY PRODUCTS WITH THIS ONE FOR FREE; ALTHOUGH YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURCHASE ONLY THE POETRY HANDOUTS PRODUCT "Poetry Skills Worksheets for Middle School.” AND THAT IS STILL AVAILABLE AT MY HOME PAGE, MAMA FLANDERS.
This bonus product has 8 worksheets based on the 12 lessons. It was made to go with the power point, but stands
alone also for the study of all the poetry skills for middle school.
Each worksheet has one poem with 12 questions based on
the 12 poetry skill lessons, as well as, questions pertaining just to that poem. I refer to these on the power point as a packet of Worksheets #1--#4. The teacher chooses 4 of the 8 worksheets to use based on the level/grade taught. Complete answer key sheets
are included with the product. These worksheets are also wonderful for getting ready for those yearly
I’ve also included a bonus activity for learning the definitions of
the poetry terms called “Poetry Terms Zip-Around.” It’s a fun activity.
(Sometimes there are slides with so much information that the margins had to
be set to the least (0.5 or 0.0) selection so all text will fit on the slide. If you
have a problem with the edges cut off, please set your margins
to this setting.)
All poems chosen were written before 1923 and are available for use
in this power point and worksheets because they follow the “fair use”
policy and poems written before 1923 also are not copyrighted.
