Crafting Comparison Poems includes step-by-step lessons to teach children how to write vivid imagery and how to craft poems from those sentences or phrases. The first lesson is teacher-directed and guides students through the process of writing similes and metaphors. Next, the class crafts a comparison poem together. The next two lessons are collaborative activities in which students work with a partner or team to write a poem. You can use either or both lessons, or skip those lessons completely. Finally, students apply what they learned as they write poetry independently. This product includes directions for each lesson, poetry examples to share with your students, and ready-to-use printables.
