Poetry Through Song – A No Prep Unit



Poetry Through Song -  A No Prep Unit


Product Description
Half price for a limited time only!

Teach the art of poetry through song lyrics

I love teaching poetry! I love it when my student like learning it too.

So many students dislike poetry that I wanted to create a unit just for them. This unit takes a different approach to teaching poetry all while allowing students to be critical of the songs they hear on the radio. This unit teaches the same skills as traditional poetry units do, but does it more lightly.

Take a look at what is included in this bundle:

An introductory video on how to approach poetry throughout the unit see video here Poetry Through Song Introduction Video

A Figurative Language Bingo Game to make learning and reviewing figurative language more fun.

The Teacher Guide includes 13 complete lessons focusing on and building on specific skills with each lesson

The Student Guide includes the following:

-notes on how to approach poetry

-notes on poetic devices and figurative language

– A copy of the following songs: Malibu, Roar, Scars to your Beautiful, Golden Leaves, Sound of Silence, There were Roses, The Cave, Something Just Like This, and Lost Boy. A wide variety of songs are included.

-Activities accompany every song (Theme and meaning, historical and literary allusions, the meaning of pronouns, Thematic connection exercises, video comparison activity, fun with allusions, fun with metaphors, fun with idioms, and much more.) See the preview for more details.

The Answer Key includes the answers to all questions and activities and comes with detailed annotations of each poem.

A Culminating Task with rubric included (in Word format for easy modifications)

140 pages included + 1 video

FREE MATH LESSON – “Percent of a Number Escape Room Activity – FREE CHALLENGE”

by Lindsay Perro

6th – 8th Grade



This activity is a FREE sample challenge to give you a look inside the Math Escapes line of resources.

Students will be given 10 percent problems to solve. They will locate the card in the envelope that contains their answer and lay it on top of the question on the challenge page. When finished, they will need to preform the indicated operation(s) with their answers in order to reveal the code.

Also included is a hint card, envelope label and answer key.

About Math Escapes : 
Math Escapes provide students with a collaborative way to review math skills. Each escape includes eight challenges that require students to use specific skills to find codes that will unlock each puzzle.

What makes Math Escapes different? 
Math Escapes do not require the challenges to be completed in any particular order. In order for students to “escape” they simply have to find all 8 codes. This allows for (a) differentiation, (b) removal of challenges for time and (c) the ability for you to only make one copy of each challenge because as groups finish one challenge their next one can be whatever is available.

What is included in each Math Escape activity?
⇢ CCSS and TEKS standard alignment
⇢ Four pages of escape directions
⇢ A digital lock option
⇢ Links to locks/boxes to purchase
⇢ An “unpacking” video where I walk you through prep and setup
⇢ Detailed puzzle teacher information
⇢ 8 challenges with prep instructions and materials
⇢ Hint cards for each challenge (PDF format and EDITABLE PPT format)
⇢ Group code sheet
⇢ Student workbook
⇢ Photos that show each challenge prepped
⇢ End of escape signs and a sign template
⇢ Prize ideas
⇢ Answer keys

Materials Needed
You do not need to spend money on locks and boxes (although that option and links to materials are included). You can simply use manila folders or the included digital lock.
