Poetry Unit: "Exploring poetry and figurative language!" This is a common core correlated unit on writing poetry and figurative language. It includes a Power Point Presentation that goes over similes, metaphors, alliteration, onomatopoeia, personification, and hyperbole. This presentation also includes examples in poetry for each type of figurative language, and a sheet for student notes. Finally, students will take a quiz to assess their knowledge of figurative language.
Next, there is a poetry Power Point presentation that teaches haiku poems, cinquain poems, limericks, acrostics, concrete poems, color poems, and free verse. There are many examples for each type. There is also a graphic organizer to go along with each type of poetry, with samples and reminders to help students along the way. These drafting organizers guide students through the process of writing their poems.
Finally there is a project where students create a booklet to share there own poetry. The project also assesses their ability to use figurative language in their work.
The poetry bundle includes these resources and more...
