Exploring Poetry: Tools for Teaching Kids to Read and Understand Poetry is a 2-part poetry unit with lessons and activities for introducing poetic devices, analyzing poetry, and interpreting poetry. The first part of the poetry unit includes a collection of activities for introducing the basic elements of poetry, and the second part is devoted to reading and responding to poetry. Students begin by exploring the structure and elements of poetry, including the meanings of eight common poetic devices. Next, they apply this knowledge as they engage in close reading strategies, poetry discussions, and written response activities. Lesson suggestions and printables for all activities are included. This unit does not include poems, but it does include links to free online poems that can be used with these lessons. Some of the pages in this packet are in color, but there are black and white versions of all student printables.
