This is a power point that correlates with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading Series. This power point teaches the elements of free verse and lyric poetry. This power point goes along with the Unit 4, Week 5 story "Words Free as Confetti" and "Dreams".
This power point includes colorful slides which include animation. Students can read the poems independently and jot down elements they find in the text that identify it as a Lyric or free verse poetry, then they can come back as a class and share their discoveries. This is a great way to help struggling readers in a safe environment where they should not feel uncomfortable sharing out their ideas.
I have several other products that relate to these poems. Please check them out in my store. This is also included in a lesson plan bundle that includes everything you'll need to successfully teach this unit. Thank you for considering my products. Please leave feedback if you enjoy using these items in your classroom! THANKS!
Thank you to CREATIVE CLIPS for the use of their products in creating this power point!
