This terrific poetry bundle will first engage your students through a colorful, interactive, educational PowerPoint presentation on couplets. This lesson leads to the examination of a touching and thought-provoking original Thanksgiving poem which is suitable for choral reading, a fill-in-the-blank couplet completion activity and, finally, to students creating their own Thanksgiving couplets.
The package includes:
- A rhyming couplets PowerPoint lesson.
- "Take a Minute" an original poem in two verses and 16 lines, which I wrote to foster in students an understanding and appreciation of how fortunate we are. This poem would be ideal for recitation in class or in an assembly.
- A version of the poem in which students are required to complete the rhymes.
- A Thanksgiving rhyming couplet activity in which students write rhyming couplets about topics like a person they are thankful for.
