2nd Grade Snowetry

Winter is such a fun time to throw in some poetry and figurative language lessons! We spent last week and this week absorbed in reading and writing our own poetry. 

Check it out! 

Free Form Poetry Snowflakes 

Haiku Hats 

Haiku - a form of Japanese poetry with 3 lines

Line 1: 5 syllables
Line 2: 7 syllables
Line 3: 5 syllables

Simile Scarves

Simile- a comparison using like or as
Ex: My students are as bright as the sun. :) 

Alliteration Lights

Alliteration - A sentence that repeats the same beginning letter or sound in almost every word. 
Ex: Sweet, swirling, softly, swaying snowflakes falling all around. 

The kiddos also practiced and performed a poem by Calef Brown. 

Funky Snowman

Funky snowman loves to dance.
You'd think he wouldn't have much chance,
Without two legs or even pants.
Does that stop funky snowman, no! 

Turn up the music with the disco beat.
When you're in the groove,
You don't need feet! 
Crowds come out and fill the street. 
Kick it, Funky Snowman!
