Have you been looking for ways to meet the 1st and 2nd grade Common Core standard RL.4?
Not only will you meet this standard with this unit, you will do so in through meaningful Arts integrated lessons. I have used this unit for the past three years and have gotten amazing poetry from my 1st graders because the poetry templates are not fill in the blank, cookie cutter templates. Your students will be writing descriptively and creatively.
This unit includes:
Detailed Arts Integrated Lesson Plans
Poetic Device Posters for Rhyme, Alliteration, Repetition, Similes, Rhythm and Sensory Language to anchor learning
Poetry templates and activities to teach each Poetic Device
An amazing strategy to teach you and your students to write poetry with rhythm easily
Artwork with model poems to print or project
Artwork extensions to accompany poems written by students
Cover page and parent letter for student poetry books
Higher level original poem writing with rubric to assess students understanding and knowledge utilization of poetic devices.
