Today we'll be learning about themes in poetry and writing our own poetry using themes. Lesson outline: 30 minutes: 1. Read through the slideshow and jot answers to the questions (5 minutes). 2. In your writing notebook (or a blank notebook), outline a theme (or a few themes) you want to write about today and plan some poem ideas (5 minutes). 3. Independent write poetry of your choice using specific themes (20 minutes). 4. Take a picture of your favourite poem and use a voice or typed caption to explain your theme and what specific words and phrases you used that show the theme in your poem. 5. Upload the picture and caption to this Seesaw Activity.
