    An excellent resource, this book teaches students to write poetry by studying the forms and styles of great writers such as Shakespeare, Scott, Tennyson, and Longfellow. Students then complete a number of practice activities which reinforce the concepts learned.

    The student workbook contains 30 lessons. It is recommended that three lessons be covered each week. Each lesson takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

    As the teacher you will likely want to read through the new concepts at the top of the page with your student. Concepts covered in this volume include: simile, rhyme, how to use a rhyming dictionary, metaphor, meter, pun, iamb, personification, trochee, synecdoche, anapest, hyperbole, dactyl, onomatopoeia, alliteration, rhetorical question, refrain, oxymoron, spacial poetry, and euphemism. The student will then work through the activity. After every few lessons, review questions are given to insure that the concepts are retained and to provide additional practice of previously-covered information. Upon the completion of this program, the student should have mastered several figures of speech called tropes. A cumulative test is also included. Teacher's edition contains teaching instructions as well as completed student pages. ~ Rachel

    Did you know that everyone has poet potential? We just need to tap into the freedom that comes from writing down our thoughts, memories, and feelings. Of course, there are a few things we can do to give shape and structure to our poems. This book is a self-instructional introduction to poetry for an older child or adult, but it could be used well with younger children with adult supervision. It defines 14 poetic elements in easy-to-understand terms. Building step-by-step, this book begins with metaphors and similes, then moves on to skills such as personification, imagery, alliteration, onomatopoeia, repetition, rhyme, meter, tone, synesthesia, and symbolism. Each term has a chapter dedicated to them. The term is clearly defined and then illustrated by many poems (written by the author's former students) which provide ample examples (a little rhyme there). Then the chapter includes worksheets, exercises, and writing suggestions to get those creative juices flowing as your children practice the skills in their own poetry. The author, Shelley Tucker, has clearly written this book in such a way that beginning poets can easily understand and apply the principles to their writing. The exercises and concepts are also relevant to experienced poets who want to improve their poetry. Poetry - taught in a way that unleashes the poet inside! 144 pages, pb. - Jess

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    For a more in-depth course in poetic appreciation and understanding, turn to these units which contain and analyze some of the best poetry from the late Middle Ages through the 19th (Classical) or early 20th (Traditional) century. The poems used are printed right in the loose-leaf text and include works from such notable authors as William Shakespeare, John Keats, Christopher Marlowe, John Donne, John Milton, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and others. Both units begin with a study of "The Ballad", though more attention is given to this form in the Traditional Poetry unit, which also contains a Nursery Rhymes section. The basic organization of Classical Poetry is by "Age" (Elizabethan, Seventeenth Century, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Romantic, Victorian, and Nineteenth Century) with a discussion about that era and the style of poetry characterizing it. Biographical information about each poet is included, along with a blackline "portrait." After the first two units in Traditional Poetry, that book is organized by poet and also includes biographical information and a portrait for each. Activities follow the poetry. These range from interpretational to a study of poetic devices and are very well-contrived, with ample explanation and background information. Concluding each unit are activities for essay and discussion centering around themes in the poems or asking students to compare or contrast aspects of two or more of the poems. These are excellent units; my only quibble is the lack of a teacher key to evaluate student responses. If you do this study along with your child, this shouldn't be much of a deterrent.

    We have many poetry books in our house. While we can't agree on which is best, this anthology is definitely one of our favorites! Compiled especially for children ages 5-12, it's a veritable treasure house of delightful poetry, both classic and contemporary. Charmingly illustrated by Arnold Loebel, the 572 poems (selected by Jack Prelutsky) are arranged in fourteen thematic sections. Not only an "award winner" at our house, this compendium has earned numerous distinguished awards from the American Library Association, Children's Editor's Choice, the International Reading Association, and School Library Journal. Ours is getting quite dog-eared - like any much-read book! Please note there is one small section that includes poems on "magic" and mythical creatures, such as trolls, goblins, ghosts, and witches, but little mention of Halloween is made in the seasonal and holiday section. 244 pgs, hc.

    Poetry is a perfect avenue for teaching literary elements. They are typically short, allowing you to focus on particular elements without losing sight of the poem as a whole. This book has 12 reproducible lessons, each following the same format. First comes a definition of the literary element and suggestions for introducing it and the poem to your students, a vocabulary box, reading the poem aloud, discussion and activity suggestions, a writing activity and some ideas to extend the lesson. In the back of the book is a glossary of key terms and reproducible activity pages (graphic organizers) to help students understand the literary elements. Terms learned are plot, setting, character, theme, symbolism, metaphor, simile, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, mood and poetic patterns. The poems themselves are as varied as the literary elements. Some are quite short, only a couple are longer, but still not more than a page. The subjects have broad appeal and are very well chosen to demonstrate the elements. A ballad called “The Golden Vanity” teaches plot and a short one called “Quilt” demonstrate symbolism, for example. If you are wanting to add poetry and are not sure how, this book walks you through the process in a very user-friendly presentation. 96pp, pb. ~ Sara

    Here's the junior version containing the same concise, organized, and helpful advice as the original Painless books, just geared toward a younger grade level. It will show kids that grammar doesn't have to be painful or scary, and can even be fun! The theme of the book is a pretend amusement park called Grammar World, where different animals introduce the reader to different aspects of grammar. There are five main chapters covering sentences, nouns, pronouns and adjectives, verbs and adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, and mechanics. Information is presented in a clear, organized way that is easy for students to follow. Plenty of "Let's Try It" sections provide quizzes to practice concepts just learned, "Trick to Remember" sections highlight important hints to keep in mind, "Treasure Hunt" areas prompt students to find examples of certain topics, "Careful" sections warn students of possible problems, "Treasure Chest" sections give examples of certain topics, "Wrapping It Up" gives a summary of key ideas, and "Hitting the Target" provides practice with the chapter's ideas. Two-colored illustrations add some fun to the learning. The guide is written directly to students so they can learn and practice the concepts independently. Answers to the practice sections are included in the back of the book. 158 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    You know an approach to grammar is different when students and teachers are giggling. Indeed, Jane Kiester's 10-step approach to teaching grammar is rather amusing, with the bonus of being extremely effective, which certainly sets it apart from many other grammar books! How does Jane keep her classes giggling through grammar? The Caught'ya. In essence, the Caught'ya is one or two sentences of a continuous, humorous story, filled with grammar errors that the teacher wants to eliminate. In this book, Jane walks you through how the Caught'ya works and exactly how to integrate this approach in your own classroom. She starts by "inviting" you into her classroom to see how she uses the Caught'ya and then breaks down the process into ten easy steps. Ten steps may sound intimidating, but each one is a very small piece and the entire task only takes 5-10 minutes a day. In short, the ten steps consist of composing the daily Caught'ya sentence by deciding on a plot, the skills and a vocabulary word to address that day, writing the sentence down incorrectly on the board and critiquing students as they copy the Caught'ya on their own paper correctly, and concluding by checking the sentence together with the whole class, then having the students mark their mistakes, count up their own errors, and turn in their work. The complete, detailed explanations of each step are found in chapter 2. The third chapter focuses on how to evaluate the Caught'ya, with thorough directions on checking and grading the content as well as the format, using real student's Caught'yas as examples. Chapter 4 goes beyond the basics and describes how to use Caught'yas as a tool to teach other grammar skills such as spelling, diagramming sentences, and writing, among other tips. This chapter also holds sample spelling practices and Caught'ya grammar tests with answer keys. Assuming that many teachers may find the idea of creating their own funny story plot and outline a bit daunting, Jane includes six sample story ideas in chapter 5, two each for elementary, middle, and high school classes, tried and very successful in classrooms. These suggestions serve as a plot for you to flesh out through your daily Caught'ya sentences, each one offering a tidbit of the funny tale to anticipating students. If the task of writing your own sentences based on a given outline still sounds too hard, then you'll appreciate chapters 6-8, which each hold 100 daily Caught'ya sentences for your use until you are comfortable writing them yourself. Each of these chapters holds sentences for one of the sample stories from each grade level and gives you the passage written incorrectly and correctly, with the skills covered and vocabulary word. With her helpful, personal writing style, Jane Keister leaves you encouraged and fully prepared to "catch" your own giggling grammar students. ~ Steph

    What's the right amount of poetry for a junior high student? I think you'll agree that this collection is "just right." Assuming the student knows the basics (e.g. rhythm, rhyme patterns, metaphor, etc.), this study provides 32 poems (one for each week) printed right in the book. The collection is eclectic; some classic, some not, but each with something to offer – and the invitation to the student to slow down long enough to see, hear, and taste the world the poet has created. Following each poem is a short series of discussion questions, one of which is a vocabulary inquiry. Students are encouraged to keep a notebook with the answers and are often asked to write short paragraphs. Because answers will typically vary, there's no answer key. 105 pgs, pb

    A revised and expanded edition of First Grammar Lessons by Charlotte Mason, authored by Karen Andreola. Truly a gentle, friendly, but thorough approach to grammar without all of the tedious workbooking - in the true spirit of Charlotte Mason. Karen has retained the soul of the book while updating it for us, replacing obscure words and giving us larger, crisper type, but using turn-of-the century illustrations and vine-bordered pages. The book embraces an interactive approach to grammar, accomplished, for the most part, orally. It is a natural, uncomplicated method - you simply sit down with your child and this book and teach. Lessons are to be completed at the rate of one per week, in short, 10-15 minute sessions. One rule is taught per lesson. The 46 lessons here, along with the additional exercises in the appendices, should supply a year of pleasurable instruction.

    Residing in this handy volume are the explanations and examples of literary and poetic elements you've been looking for! After a short preface, the entire book consists of reproducible student pages, and is pretty much self-instructional. According to the author, "Words are tools, and mastered words are power tools." In this spirit, all of the exercises are reality-based and constitute actual practice in using each new term as a tool. The first part of the book covers the basic tools: setting, plot, mood, conflict, style, theme, point of view, slant, and character, with a special section on outlining. The second part covers the shared vocabulary of poetry and prose: figures of speech (antithesis, apostrophe, hyperbole, irony, literary allusion, metaphor, metonymy, oxymoron, personification, simile, synecdoche, and understatement). Each of these first two sections contains a definition of the term, a cartoonish depiction of the concept, additional explanation, examples, and exercises. Answers to these exercises are included in the back of the book. The final part covers the specialized vocabulary of poetry: melody (alliteration, assonance, and rhyme), onomatopoeia, rhythm, and rhyme schemes. It also presents and explains various types of poetry including: epic, narrative, lyric, acrostic, ballad, blank verse, didactic, dramatic, elegy, epigram, epitaph, free verse, haiku, light verse, limerick, ode, parody, pastoral, satire, sonnet, and wordplay. A special section on poetry explication, complete with sample questions and sample explication elements ends the unit. One of the problems I've encountered in using a non-text approach to literature in the upper grades is the hit-or-miss presentation of literary terms. Some guides touch on a concept or two in each guide but what are the chances that my high schoolers will be exposed to all of them in our course of study? So, I've been on the lookout for a book just like this, to make sure my children have the familiarity and understanding of literary and poetic terms they'll need in college - regardless of the literature program we use.

    This book contains more of everything that made the original book, Caught Ya! Grammer with a Giggle, so popular. Designed to be used in addition to or after the first book, it actually includes all the info needed to be used independently. The first chapter in this book summarizes the first three chapters of the original book, outlining the ten basic steps to set up and use this system. Then a special chapter deals with how parents or tutors of just one or two children can use the method, which is especially useful to homeschoolers and was not included in the first book. Tips on coming up with your own stories and sentences, mini-lessons, and writing suggestions are all included. Then six new, humorous story ideas, 100 sentences for grades 2-5, 100 sentences for grades 6-8, and 100 sentences for grades 9-12 are all included. Stories are still somewhat public school oriented, but all the tools are there for homeschooling parents to make their own. With enough sentences for the entire year (filled with grammar mistakes for students to fix), instructions and ideas for teachers, an end of the year test, funny stories for students to follow, and a grammar reference in the back of the book, it's never been easier to make students have fun with grammar.

    The Imitation in Writing series is designed to teach aspiring writers the art and discipline of crafting delightful prose. This Poetry Primer was created to provide introductory level instruction and practice before the student begins The Grammar of Poetry by the same author, Matt Whitling.

    Starting with a lesson designed to debunk the notion that poetry is only flowery snippets that appeal to girls, the student is challenged to take the time to investigate what poetry really is and to determine to enjoy it. To make this challenge more palatable, a poetic quote from Master Samwise of Lord of the Rings fame is given. Poetry is defined as a language of pictures and music. To illustrate the diversity of poetic language, riddles are scattered throughout the student pages.

    Remarkably thorough but not overwhelming for an introductory book, the seventeen lessons include such poetic devices as simile, rhyme, metaphor, personification, and inclusion, combined with a more lengthy look at meter particularly iamb and trochee. Lessons are varied, including both analysis and original composition. I would expect the lessons to take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. It could be used either as a quarter's study (two lessons per week) or over the course of a semester (one lesson per week). A final exam is provided.

    The Teacher Edition contains exact copies of the student book with answers. Annoyingly, the page numbers between the two books do not correspond. The Student Book also includes an anthology of poetry designed to capture the interest of even the most reluctant poetry student. Although no instructions are given for the use of the selections from this anthology, it wouldn't take much planning or creativity to incorporate its use as part of this study or as continuing exposure to poetry selections. ~ Janice

    This inexpensive book contains eighteen lessons that teach students to become better poets. Each three to five page lesson covers a different topic such as rhyme, rhythm, topic, grammar, word choice, alliteration, or religious poetry. The lessons begin by presenting several short poems that contain elements of the topics covered in the lesson. The poems are followed by a lesson, which explains and analyzes the poetry topics. Next are exercises for students to practice their own poetry-writing skills. The exercises vary in length and complexity; some are fill-in-the-blank type exercises that involve completing the lines of a poem while others require students to write their own poems based upon concepts taught in the lessons. The poems used throughout the book are taken from Rod and Staff's Poems for Memorization, so many of them have religious themes. For additional motivation, the end of each lesson features examples of poems written by actual students. Several review exercises give students the opportunity to tie together multiple poetry concepts. Answers included. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    This book walks the student through 41 step-by-step lessons which first introduce them to a type of poetry, and then guide them through the writing process so they can create their own verses. Each lesson fits nicely on a two-page spread, where the specific poem type is explained through definition and example, and a reproducible student page on the right where they work through steps to write their own. For example, in the lesson on haiku, they learn about haiku poetry, read through the given suggestions and tips on how to write their own, think about possible topics, write several phrases or words related to the topic, and then work at arranging them to fit the 5-7-5 haiku pattern. The bottom of the page features blank lines for writing their finished poetry, with plenty of blank space for illustrations or borders. The format and content of these lessons make it easy for students to work on their own, and the lessons are designed to be completed fairly quickly. Some poetry types covered in the lessons are: couplets, onomatopoeia, cinquain, ballad, metaphor, diamonte, I wish poetry, ABC poetry, limericks, question, recipe, tongue twister, trouble, people, simile, and much more. Suggestions on how to collect and share poetry are included, as well as a bibliography and step-by-step bookbinding techniques - in case you really get into poetry-writing! - Jess

    This is certainly a friendlier grammar book than the one I had in junior high. Instruction has a conversational tone. Grammar rules are easy to identify since they're printed in bold, and the extensive use of right and wrong sentences is helpful. This book covers parts of speech, building and punctuating sentences, agreement, confused and misused words, and editing. One drawback is the small number of exercise sets; there are only 19 in the whole text. ~ Anh
