The purpose of these lessons is to teach students to identify rhyming words through poetry reading and writing. They will learn some different styles of poetry as they go although this is not a unit to teach poetry as such.
With this mini unit students will extend/reinforce their knowledge about rhyming.
I have created additional mini units which use reading and writing poetry to teach students about the use of parts of speech and to identify syllables in words.
I have included a few mentor texts however there are many texts which would be suitable to use.
I have also included examples of the poetry styles to assist when teaching or you could create your own.
