Warm up your winter with interactive poetry analysis! Students analyze 12 winter poems, then write their own ode to winter in this engaging unit!
A variety of poems on several reading levels allows you to customize this activity to fit your students’ needs! Students can analyze poems on their individual reading levels, or you can start with simpler poems and progress to more challenging poems! You also have enough poems to start this activity as a whole class, then transition to small groups, pairs, and finally individual work.
This interactive resource can be integrated in Interactive Notebooks (sized to fit composition books!), used as an Interactive File Folder activity, or used as a stand-alone activity!
