This is a great unit that gets your learners' creative writing flowing! One of the most important parts of learning poetry is understanding figurative language, so this unit truly focuses on how language in poetry is used. Another way that the unit helps learners with thinking creatively is using a fun doodle warm up activity.
Students start with a small, obscure doodle, and they will turn it into whatever they see! This was a loved activity! Check out the fun doodles my littles made below:
Finally, this awesome unit includes great anchor charts for all the figurative language vocabulary.
