This poetry unit intro is a quick and easy way to refresh students’ skills in reading and analyzing poetry!


This Elements of Poetry Unit Introduction Reviews:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Pick Up n Prep with Ms P said, “This resource was so easy to use. I really appreciate the notes pages for students, and the matching presentation. It was a great way to talk about elements of poetry, and practice note taking.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Julie-Ann said, “I used this resource to guide note taking for my virtual students. It made it easy for them to follow along and take notes while I explained the concepts over a Google Meet. The students knew exactly what to write down and where to write it down. It eliminated the always dreaded question “do I need to write this down?”. Great resource! Highly recommend.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Aarion said, “This resource was perfect! It was organized and easy to read. Great addition to my poetry unit.”


How long does this take? It often takes my 6th-graders two 45-minute class periods to go over the content and take notes in a brain-friendly way. After that – you can incorporate some fun activities to give your students practice with the various elements!
