Seasonal poetry is a great way to turn students on to various poetry devices. It is a simple quick fix for those underlying core standards that need to be taken into account before state testing. By utilizing various poetic forms with these hands-on mini-lessons, you are sure to have your students understanding even the most remote concepts.
Hyperbole exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
Personification the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something nonhuman, or the representation of an abstract quality in human form.
Run off this mini-lesson that explains both devices effectively to your students. This seven-page document will walk you through the steps and teach each with ease.
Students are asked to complete a five-line poem, but gifted classes can do more.
