The next few weeks we will be exploring poetry.  Take a look at the links below and read as many poems as you can this week.  In your writing notebook write down what you notice about the poems you read.  Do they have rhythm, alliteration, rhyming, onomatopoeia, personification, similes or metaphors? Are the poems narratives, lyrical, funny or free verse?





After collecting your ideas please post the following on the padlet below:

  • What is the title of the poem?
  • What does the poet do?
  • Give an example from the poem to show the poetry device used
  • Put your initials and # on the post
  • Remember correct spelling and punctuation
