PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From Wikipedia: Struwwelpeter is a German children's book by Heinrich Hoffmann. It comprises ten illustrated and rhymed stories, mostly about children. Each has a clear moral that demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehavior in an exaggerated way.


-----------------------------------------------------

This product is a complete poetry unit that focuses on the slightly twisted fairy tales of Heinrich Hoffmann to teach poetic devices including:

- Alliteration
- Assonance
- Metaphor
- Simile
- Onomatopoeia
- Personification

The product includes:
- A standalone poem with a anticipatory activity to introduce the fairy tales.
- A modeling/practice activity for use with the standalone poem.
- A 14 page student work packet that includes 5 new poems and activity pages for each.
- A final poetry writing project that parallels the "twisted fairy tales."

This unit is a great way to engage middle school students in a topic that they usually find boring and uninspiring! Activities are varied to address all learning styles!

*The works of Heinrich Hoffmann were adapted from Gutenberg.org. All worksheets and activities are original materials.
