This poetry packet contains everything you need to teach students to interpret and analyze poetry. I have been using these materials for years and my students always say the poetry unit is one of their favorite units of the year. There are almost 40 pages of notes, student practice, answer keys and teaching tips.
The packet includes cloze notes and examples for:
• Figurative Language (Simile, Metaphor, Personification)
• Sound Devices (Onomatopoeia, Rhyme, Alliteration, Repetition)
• Tone, Rhyme Scheme, Theme, Point of View (1st and 3rd)
The packet also includes 7 pages of practice sheets, including whole group, collaborative, and individual work, for figurative language and sound devices.
A step-by-step poem analysis tool and a figurative language quiz is also included.
