-Students will then come up to teachers to have them look over their poetry pages one last time and they will be stapled together. Have students pick their favorite poem. -After books are handed in, have students review verbally to a partner the meanings of alliteration, exaggerations, simile, and onomatopoeia. -Hand out quiz explaining that you want to see how much they learned throughout the past lessons. Allow students time to work on quiz, they may ask questions if needed. Some students may need quizzes read verbally to them. -Have students go to computer lab and type their favorite poem they wrote.

finish as well. Finish poems will be combined into a book as a gift to teacher. -If teacher willing: students will choose their favorite poem from their poetry books and record them. Students will be in pairs, one student will hold the recorder for them and the other will read their poems. Poems could be uploaded to school page or played out loud in class. *** On students after school fine arts night, students will have their poems out on their desk and will be able to share the poems they wrote with parents. -Talk to students about where they may see poetry in the real world. Have them brain storm ideas by raising hands. Commercials, Bible, books, songs, etc. -Talk to them about recognizing the components we learned from then on forward.


Closure (conclusion, culmination, wrap-up)

-Students participate in discussion and listen attentively.

Your reflection about the lesson, including evidence(s) of student learning and engagement, as well as ideas for improvement for next time. (Write this after teaching the lesson, if you had a chance to teach it. If you did not teach this lesson, focus on the process of preparing the lesson.) This lesson ended up going a little differently than initially planned. I split the lesson up into two days, due to time restrictions. We spent one day adding final touches to our poetry books. The students had time to finish their final copies of any poems and finish their pictures that go with each poem. Once they were done they brought them to me and I stapled them together. When students were done they worked on other class work (Mrs. Pott assigned other projects to finish during this time). Everyone was in class the day we finished putting the books together, so everyone in the classes poetry books were finished for fine arts night where they shared them with their parents. Then a few days later we did the final quiz. I began by reviewing verbally with the class the topics we covered. I wrote each of them on the board and student volunteered to share what each one was and an example of each one. Then I passed out the quiz but I never verbally called it a quiz. I said it was a way for me to understand if they learned what I had taught them or not. I read each question out loud and gave the students time to work completely individually on it. They did really well! All but 2 students grasped all the concepts well. There were about 5 students who confused the last question, Joe is as quiet as a mouse as an exaggeration when it was a simile. Even the lowest learner in the class got the answers correct when I read the questions out loud to him. Students were also able to think of onomatopoeias and alliterations of their own quite easily. I think overall it went well. Mrs. Pott chose not to have the students record their poems and I decided on a different final gift for Mrs. Pott than the book of their poems.
