Review of key concepts from last lesson
Last LA class we talked about poetry with Mr.
Martens Monday morning. We talked about different
types of poetry.
On the board lets go over the different types of
poetry. By raising your hand, tell me some of the
8 mins types of poetry we talked about and read. There
was 5 different types.
Five Line Poems

First off it is very important to remember the elements of
each type of poetry. Lets quickly go through the 5 types of
poetry that we discussed and the things to remember. By
raising your hands, what are the elements of Acrostic
Poems? *Hint we created them in class with our names. *
Letters of the word go down the page
vertical. At each letter you can write a word
or sentence about the word.
Have 3 lines.
The first line and last line have 5 syllables.
The second line has 7 syllables.
12 mins Limerick
Have 5 lines.

The 1st, 2nd and fifth lines rhyme each
other. The 3rd and 4th rhyme each other
(All the rhymes do not need to rhyme
throughout the poem). The lines that rhyme
alternate. The last two lines should rhyme
each other.
Five Line
Each stanza should have 5 lines.

- I will have students go through these poetry types and

recall the elements to these 5 different poems. Students
may need prompts even though they have be introduced to
these elements before

- I will have these items already typed out on a Word

2:27 Document show on the smartboard so that I do not lose the
interest of the students. After the class discusses each type
of poetry and the elements I will show the elements on the
smartboard for all to see and quickly read them before
moving on. This will help the students that didnt make the
connection during the discussion a chance now.

2:17 Transition: We will shift from listing elements of the different

poetry to viewing poetry and deciding as a group what type of
poetry it is and why.

Transition: Students will need to have a body break. A stretching

activity will be beneficial to get students out of their seats.
Okay students we need a body break because we have
been sitting for awhile now. If you would prefer to watch
you can since its a brain break, but you must remain
quiet and respectful.
2:27 Everyone that wants to participate stand up we are
going to do some stretches. You will all need to stay
close to your tables.
Touch your toes and count to 15, try to keep
your legs straight and stretch your legs.
Stand on your tippy toes and stretch your
hands and arms to the sky, try to hold this
for 10 seconds.
Now stand on your feet flat footed and arms
10 mins still in the air stretched out. Now move your
arms to the left and hips to the right to make
your body the shape of the letter C and a
backwards C.
Ask for two suggestions of stretches or
poses students want to do.
The final one is the most tricky. Stand tall
with one of your feet on your leg somewhere
between your ankle and your knee. Then to
make it more difficult raise your arms above
your head with the palms of your hands
pressed together. If you need to put your
other leg down to regain your balance again,
go ahead. Try to see if you can hold this
pose for 5 seconds.

Transition: Okay students please return back to your seats. We

are now going to be looking at poems. To switch it up you will be
working with your groups at your tables. We will need to be in four
groups. I am going to move a few people around, but not
everyone. Listen for your name to be call and move quietly so that
others will hear their name being called so they can move.
What is our first steps?
2:37 Listen quietly to hear your name.
Move quietly if you hear your name
This will take a few minutes. If your name is not
called your job is to wait at your seat for the next
5 mins instructions.
To show me your are ready after I call out the
names and where they should go I want everyone
to sit in their chairs and pose like a snowman.
Who can show me how a snowman might
1. Listen
2. Move if your name is called
3. Pose like a snowman

I need Liam to go to the Yellow table, Bradyn to the blue

table, Deon to go to the gear table, Nora to the blue table
and Georgia to the blue table or green depending on
That is everyone that is moving. In 5 seconds
everyone should be at their desks showing me their
are ready by posing like a snowman.

Group Learning Activity.

During this activity everyone in the group will need to talk to
each other and come up with one answer. After everyone
2:47 in the groups have quietly talked about what type of poem
they think I showed them then they will all raise their hands
showing me their groups has the answer.
It is very important they everyone has their hand up
and that no one shouts out the answer or their
group will not be picked. If students need to be
reminded to raise their hands and not shouting out I
will enforce this.

Color the rhyming pattern on the Unaware poem below.

by Kaitlyn Guenther

Isolation quickly overwhelms me

Begging for forgiveness, a fallen hand
Desolation I now begin to see
Hanging by a thin thread, a single strand

I watch them Their fears, their misbehaviour

Mistreat, abuse. Completely unaware
I am the land, their glorious saviour
Someday they will learn to treat me with care

I wish they would learn to trust each other

To join as one, to stand strong together
A bond, a band and a mighty brother
Forever as one, a powerful tether

You may not know, that fear is their captor

So you may not see each special factor
