I led students through some pre-writing exercises to practice creating metaphors from objects exercise; these exercises, along with the personification activity from Wednesday, could easily turn themselves into Poem 2 or 3. Then students worked on an assignment on Google Classroom where they chose a new published poem to type up and, this time, identify figurative language. We quickly went over musical sounds of poetry before reading an example of a poem with strict form. We started looking at some of the patterns in this type of poem, and we’ll continue with it next week. Homework: finish today’s choose-a-poem assignment, and do some thinking and pre-writing on your own about Poem #2 and #3
