PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's the truth: I'm not as crafty and cutesy as some of the other curriculum developers here on TpT, but I deliver solid resources to support your ELA instruction! In this freebie, you will find the first week of a three week poetry unit. In the first week, students learn how poetry is different from prose, and how poets use the devices of emotion, imagery (including simile and metaphor), and rhythm to engage their readers in their poetry.

These plans will work best for a classroom that uses a Workshop philosophy. The mentor texts for the first week is Casey at the Bat (Thayer, 1988) and First Baseball Glove from Baseball, Snakes, and Summer Squash (Graves, 1996).

For more information on this product, please see my blog at http://bigtimeliteracy.blogspot.com/2015/04/poetry-blog-hop-2015-power-of-mini.html

By purchasing the whole unit, you will have access to all the organizers that go along with the unit. In the complete unit, students are taught to use close reading strategies to interpret poetry and are also taught how to determine theme of the poem.
