PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It always seems like poetry gets left on the back burner, doesn't it?

Let's face it : teaching rhyme scheme and imagery to 7, 8 and 9 year olds can be tough.

Well, it just got a lot easier. In this week-long unit, you and your kids will engage with a very accessible poem by Christina Rossetti called "Who has seen the wind?"

This poem explores how you can see the wind through its effects on nature. A wonderful way to explore imagery and also cover one of the texts listed as an example of Standard 10 Range of Complexity and Quality for Grades 2 and 3.

Students will write their own version of the poem. In the process they learn about rhyming words, rhyme scheme and how to create word pictures.

The mini-unit even culminates in a compare and contrast exercise in which students identify the similarities and differences between pictures they draw and images they describe.

This is an ideal end of year activity---but it is truly perfect for any time of year. Enjoy! Teaching poetry has never been more fun or easier.
