PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is a concise poetry unit designed primarily for fourth grade. In the past, I got to spend a whole month teaching poetry. Now I have to "borrow time" from the prescribed reading program to squeeze in everything my fourth graders need to know to successfully analyze poetry on the MCAS. This mini unit is designed to be as concise as possible. I took the most motivating poetry lessons that I have found help lessen the fear many people have about poetry. The children learn what goes into writing a poem in a playful way, applying poetic devices that "real poets" use, all the while learning poetry jargon they need in order to analyze poetry on state exams.

This product contains:
*8 lessons, plus 1 day of suggested culminating activities
*1 page to print on an overhead
*1 computer activity paper

You will need:
*Poems! You should have a variety of reading levels and types. Some rhyming/silly, some sad/about growing up, some about nature, some urban. The more poems you can have out for students to read, the better.
*Colored construction paper (5 different colors, 1 half sheet of each color per student)
*1 blank transparency sheet
*Computers (The first lesson is designed to be completed in the computer lab)
