Students will write their own snow or winter poetry-- works great when studying other snow poems. Includes poetry writing project and a separate poetry writing multimedia project along with two choices of self-reflection for students to identify the literary devices used in their poem.
• Snow Poetry Writing activity with student printable and rubric. Requires students to use several different poetic devices and have a minimum number of lines in one or more poems
• Snow Poetry Multimedia Project with student printable and rubric-- students write one or more snow poems using several different poetic devices and a minimum number of lines. In addition to the writing the poems, students will also create a multimedia project. The poem requirements are the same with both activities, with the difference being inclusion of the multimedia component.
• Poetic Devices Self-Reflection-- a table for students to fill in how they used specific devices in their poem and the impact of the devices. Includes the option for student addressing how the poetic device could impact a poem, if they did not use that device in their own writing.
• Snow Poetry Self-Reflection-- four short answer reflective questions on the devices successfully used, mood created, decisions on structure, and hardest part of the project.
• Poetic Devices Terms List (Bonus!) for students to refer to while working on their poems and/ or reflections.
