This month is National Poetry Month and I plan on taking this time to not only share some of my favorite poetry with my class, but also have them write some of their own. Poetry is a GREAT way to review all types of figurative language before the high stakes testing that is coming our way. If you are looking for a great review of figurative language check out my Best Seller: Figurative Language is a Hoot. I blogged about this set here in January and have heard a lot of wonderful things about it from people who have used it in their classroom. My students really got a handle on the various figurative language techniques and I have seen them use them in their writing or identifying them in our reading a lot.
Check it out to see if it will help you reintroduce and review before high stakes testing… it is on sale all month in honor of National Poetry Month!
