This is my common core correlated 55 slide power point on writing poetry and figurative language. It goes over similes, metaphors, alliteration, onomatopoeia, personification, and hyperbole. The presentation also includes examples in poetry for each type of figurative language.
Next, the power point teaches various types of poetry including: haiku poems, cinquain poems, limericks, acrostics, concrete poems, color poems, and free verse. There are many samples and reminders to help students along the way.
