Poetry, Poetry, Poetry!!!! Looking for a poetry unit that aligns with Common Core? This file contains a 47 slide power point and 26 accompanying handouts. The poetry power point includes all the basics of poetry such as rhyme scheme, line breaks, mood, theme, stanzas, etc. Students are introduced to the vocabulary, and are given multiple opportunities to practice with each skill. Included in this power point are poems from famous classic poets like Frost, Longfellow, and Whitman. (all copyright free from the public domain.) Once students are introduced to the vocabulary, the power point moves on into teaching them the various forms of poetry and provides them with original examples created by me. The handouts included coincide with everything that the power point covers giving them practice writing figurative language and poems. They can be printed out to create a poetry journal.
