POETRY UNIT -- Cowpoke Poetry Possibilities

COWPOKE POETRY POSSIBILITIES is a collection of 14 poems about cowboys and the old west. Foci include the cowboy way of life, westward expansion, the Pony Express, Annie Oakley, and the Gold Rush of 1849.

Each poem is accompanied by a teaching point covering a variety of poetic elements, including:

  • lines and stanzas
  • rhymes, rhyme schemes, internal rhyme
  • repetition
  • meter
  • assonance
  • alliteration
  • imagery
  • quatrains
  • haiku
  • couplets
  • sensory poem
  • acrostic poem
  • tercet
  • tanka
  • limerick

Skills lessons, custom designed for these poems, include:

  • verbal fluency
  • fluent and expressive reading
  • homophones
  • compound words
  • punctuation
  • syllables
  • parts of speech
  • phonics
  • vocabulary
  • alphabetical order

This unit also provides writing opportunities:
