Poetry Lesson on Sonnets (Shakespeare and Browning)



Poetry Lesson on Sonnets (Shakespeare and Browning)


Product Description

Lesson on Sonnets

This mini bundle includes a sonnet from William Shakespeare (#130) and a sonnet from Elizabeth Browning (How do I Love Thee?). In this activity, students will compare the different tones and forms from both poems. One is beautiful and romanticizes love, and the other sees love realistically (and a little meanly if you ask me). Students will identify the different types of sonnets, the figurative language found within their lines, and will have the opportunity to write their own.

Students get to see another side of Shakespeare from his sonnet. Students always love his realistic, yet sarcastic portayal of love.

The mini bundle includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activity
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key.

The entire unit contains 4 pages.

This lesson is part of a larger poetry bundle:

by Evenings With Drake

3rd – 6th Grade



This reading and writing free resource sampler has been created as a way to help 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students explore the range and depth of their feelings and emotions, specifically on how to heal a hurt heart, through the use of poetry. This one (1) poem resource is a perfect tool for teachers, school counselors, parents, therapists, paraprofessionals, group-home personnel, or anyone who works with upper elementary school-aged children.

How It Works: Students practice reading an originally written, focus-based poem either independently, or as part of small group sessions, as a way of helping themselves process any emotional responses they may have when dealing with life’s typical, everyday situations. The poem, “Somehow,” is exactly one page in length. A poem reflection page and lesson extension printable are also included.

What’s Included?
*One (1) Feeling and Emotion Poem, “Somehow”
*One (1) Real-Time Reflection Writing Page
*One (1) Lesson Extension Printable
*Answer Key

Happy poem reading! 🙂
