*"Monkey" Powerpoint for Similes and Metaphors
: Powerpoint includes an embedded studio-recorded mp3 of the song "Monkey" by Lessia Bonn at I am Bullyproof Music.
The Powerpoint asks students to identify whether the monkey is a metaphor or simile, and then what the monkey is a metaphor for. It's a great song to discuss the idea of self-doubt and thinking positively!
"Who has seen the Wind" Powerpoint:
This Powerpoint is great to show students once they have learned several of the terms in the set. It includes a linked YouTube video of a performance of the song (which is also a poem by Christina Rosetti), then has a discussion of the musical and poetic meter, the musical and poetic rhythm, and the musical and poetic form.
*"Who has seen the wind" song notation
*Powerpoint template slides:
Allows you to add your own text to slides with headers such as simile, metaphor, rhythm, etc.

This is a great way to integrate and connect subjects; it is also aligned with NCCAS, as it helps students understand relationships between music and other disciplines. Please note that all of the poetry included is in the public domain.
