Poetic Word Choice

This Poetic Word Choice lesson plan also includes:

Groups or pairs choose ordinary objects from a bag and rename them based on traits, so that a stapler becomes a "paper cobra." Then they connect this exercise to the way authors use language to emphasize certain traits through word choice. They record and explain special or unfamiliar words while reading from the verse novel Keeping the Night Watch by Hope Anita Smith. You can get the worksheets by registering for free with Readworks.org.
