Simile Lesson Plans Gray Snake blue bullet point Simile Snakes: Are you looking for a fun and engaging poetry lesson plan idea that will involve your students in writing similes in their poems?

blue bullet point Are your students usually bored when they have to write a poem in your class? They will love these unique poetry lesson plans!

blue bullet point This set of poetry teaching resources will challenge your students to use similes in their poems. Then, your students will write their poems inside fun snake shaped templates, which they can also color and design themselves.

blue bullet point This poetry project is easy to assemble. Students cut out the two snake templates along the thick black borders and glue the head and body templates together.

blue bullet point These finished simile poetry projects will make a very colorful bulletin board display in your classroom that feature your students' snake shaped poems.

These simile lesson plans include:

  • first draft writing worksheet

Simile Lesson Plans Orange Snake blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete this simile poetry assignment is included in this set of simile teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors, coloring pencils, and glue.

blue bullet point For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin writing their poems on their final draft snake poetry templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their poems on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that is included in this set of poetry lesson plans.

Simile Lesson Plans Blue Snake blue bullet point After students have edited and revised the first drafts of their simile poems, you should give them their final draft snake templates.

blue bullet point These snake shaped poetry templates measure 12 inches in length and 10 inches in width after they have been assembled together.

blue bullet point These snake templates have thick borders, so it is easy for the students to cut out their simile poetry templates themselves.

Simile Lesson Plans Purple Snake blue bullet point As I am introducing this simile poetry assignment to my students, I like to begin by sharing my simile poem with my students.

blue bullet point At the front of my classroom, I display an example of what the final draft snake poetry templates look like. By providing a visual example at the very beginning of this lesson activity, my students know what their poetry projects will look like when they have completed their final drafts.

blue bullet point For final draft poetry assignments, when I give my students fun templates to write on, I have found that they tend to use their best effort, and they are careful to not make careless spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

blue bullet point I have included color snake poetry templates for you to use as a visual example to share with your students. By using the color snake templates, you will not have to spend time coloring these snake templates yourself.

Simile Lesson Plans Green Snake blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays. Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computers.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have included a matching 5 page banner for your simile poetry bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate your banner so that it is durable and you can use it year after year for bulletin board displays of these simile snake poems.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
