Product Description
“Windy Tree” provides a poetic description of the parts of a tree by comparing them to the parts of the body. The Poem "Wind" by Subramaniya Bharati provides a poetic description of the damaging effects of wind.

Students will develop their own point of view about the topic of wind after having read both poems.

Students can use the tree metaphor provided in Windy Tree by Aileen Fisher to visualize the parts of a tree and compare this nonliteral representation to the literal description of a tree provided later in the unit through the reading of A Log’s Life or to their prior knowledge of trees. (RL.3.2, RI.3.9, L.3.5a)

Students engage in oral readings of “Windy Tree” and the poem Wind in order to build fluency. These readings will be followed by discussion of the meaning of the poem and audio recordings by students demonstrating desired read-aloud components.
