There is nothing more exciting than teaching seasonal poetry to instill literary devices. Believe it or not, if you give students poetry monthly, it becomes a breeze as you maneuver all the different types available. It doesn't take much effort, just a bit of practice to get really good.
This winter poem utilizes the devices of onomatopoeia and alliteration.
Onomatopoeia is the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named (e.g., cuckoo, sizzle ).
Alliteration is the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.
This 7-page mini lesson works through both literary devices with explicit examples so students will grasp the concepts with ease.
