Tis the Christmas/Hanukkah Season: Winter Poetry
Celebrate winter rather than focusing on religious holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah with your students with these four poems:
“Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind” by Shakespeare
“Winter: A Dirge” by Robert Burns
“Winter” by Anne Hunter
“Lines: The cold earth slept below” Percy Bysshe Shelley
These sheets are ready to be printed and used. Students are asked to find poetic elements and to consider why the authors chose to use them. This is also a graphic organizer for students to use to compare and contrast the four poems. I have also included a list of ideas on how to use this product in your classroom.
This is a perfect addition to a poetry unit, a great filler activity between units, or a sub plan!
