Instructional Ideas
  • Gather a collection of poems that learners can browse and search for examples of onomatopoeia words
  • Make a word wall featuring onomatopoeia words, have sticky-notes available that pupils can write examples on and add them to the list 
  • Create a flipped classroom assignment—direct class members to complete both exercises at home, review work when they return to school and invite them to share their chosen three words and poem 
Classroom Considerations
  • Poems need to be copied prior to conducting the lesson 
  • Vocabulary terms are linked to an online dictionary 
  • Offers a detailed explanation and a tip to help locate words in a poem 
  • Poem excerpts are typed in a light-colored font that may be challenging to read
