Fun and engaging poetry activity! Students read a poem filled with similes and then write their own version of the poem based on their "pet peeves". Students love to brainstorm all of the things that irritate them and the class discussion is usually lively! This is always one of their favourite poetry activities in our poetry unit!
Includes assignment sheet, the poem it's based on, a brainstorming sheet, examples from my own students and a marking rubric. Also includes 3 sheets of writing paper that make an excellent bulletin board display!
Easy to differentiate!
