Product Description
In this three stanza poem, “Winter Solstice,” readers will gain an understanding of the author's great disdain for the season. At the end of the poem, an invitation is given to the reader--that together they wait for summer's delight.
In response, students will write their own poem called “Summer Solstice” stating their feelings about summer and the season.
“Winter Solstice” is filled with alliteration, assonance, and figurative language, as well as a rhyme scheme. The students' double-sided worksheet is a line-by-line analysis of the poetic elements found in "Winter Solstice" in preparation for the poems they will write.
In this lesson you will receive:
--lesson plans
--the poem "Winter Solstice"
--double-sided worksheet (looking at figurative language, assonance, alliteration, and rhyme scheme in "Winter Solstice")
--answer sheet
Students should use the worksheet to help them correctly include figurative language, assonance, alliteration, and rhyme scheme in their own poems.
Of course, doing this activity near summer or winter solstice can add more fun!
