This is a 16 page unit written around the theme of Winter. The unit consists of creative writing and poetry, I have written two poems, one that I have used as a comprehension and the other is a type poem consisting of 4 stanzas of 4 lines and 8 words. The purpose is for the students to discuss the pattern and emulate it.
The unit has four pictures/photos, one requires the students to make assumptions about what is evident in the picture. The other three photos, I have used to stimulate their imaginations and encourage the students to come up with a story to explain what they see and write about it.
I also introduce the students to Catalogue and Sestina Poetry writing.
