This BUNDLE of poetry goodies has literally everything you need to teach your students about poems! The unit is comprehensive, teaching skills such as theme, figures of speech, making personal connections, compare/contrast, summarization, and making inferences. I've compiled ALL of the poetry stuff I use in my classroom to create this HUGE unit of poetry, including music lyrics, Shel Silverstein, and much, much more!
Included in the bundle:
*Anchor chart topper for "What is Poetry?"
*3 rock music themed posters
*2 foldables for interactive notebooks to define elements of figurative language (alliteration, idioms, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, simile, metaphor, personification, & allusion)
*8 flip-flap booklets for interactive notebooks with examples of each type of figure of speech from popular song lyrics
*6 sets of sample lyrics from:
-"Let it Go" (from Disney's Frozen - Idina Menzel)
-"Roar" (Katy Perry)
-"Firework" (Katy Perry)
-"Counting Stars" (One Republic)
-"Love Story" (Taylor Swift)
-"Life is a Highway" (Rascal Flatts)
*Versatile THEME & SUMMARY flip-flap booklets, poetic devices flapbook, Venn diagram, figures of speech activity sheet, & flip-flap booklet to respond to lyrics (to use with any set of lyrics)
*Chart topper for vocabulary anchor chart or pocket chart with 22 vocabulary cards
*BONUS poetry activities for "Daffodowndilly" by A.A. Milne, "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost, & "There's a Hole in My Sidewalk" by Portia Nelson (with MULTIPLE activity sheets for theme, imagery, figures of speech, and more!)
*BONUS Shel Silverstein mini-unit using "Almost Perfect," "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out," and "Smart" (with 5 activity sheets for analyzing the poems, making inferences, and MORE!)
My students LOVE this unit - I never had a class really enjoy poetry until I started using these materials! It's definitely one of my favorite units of the year, and the materials generate UNBELIEVABLE higher-order thinking and discussions. It usually takes about 2 weeks to get through the entire unit. The materials in the bundle do not include lesson plans; however, teacher directions for using the materials are imbedded throughout. You can also create your own activities to do with the materials based on your students learning abilities. It's very versatile! I'd love to hear how you used it in your classroom, so please leave feedback! I'm always looking for new, fun way to teach!!! ENJOY!
