PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PLEASE READ: This is a zipped file that contains PDF documents. If you purchased my Poetry Unit, Love That Dog novel unit, Hate That Cat novel unit, or Emily story stretcher activities (see links below), this bundle contains the same products.

Students identify figures of speech, read poetry examples that contain the figures of speech, and write poems that demonstrate figures of speech.

After looking for figurative language examples in poems, students identify signature styles of famous poets through individual poems and the novels, Love That Dog and Hate That Cat.

The culminating activity is a Poetry Project to showcase the students' poems. In addition, students provide explanations of the figures of speech used in each poem (analysis).
