1 Learning about the use and special features of poetry.
What are the Different Elements Between Poems with Rhythm, Rhyme, and Alliteration? Learning about the use and special features of poetry.

2 Overview Of The Lesson You will be taught the form and use of and special features of poetry. You will be provided with many examples. You will then be tested to see how well you can read and identify these different kinds of poetry.

3 Poetry Form Poems are made up of lines, which they call stanza.
I’m Nobody! Who are you? Are you– Nobody—Too? Then there’s a pair of us! Don’t tell! They’d advertise— you know!

4 THREE ELEMENTS Line Length Punctuation Sentence Structure

5 LINE LENGTH Poets sometimes put lines in different lengths to show emotion. Long lines show drama, energy, or force Short lines sometimes show calmness, or quiet.

6 PUNCUATION You see a lot of poems that don’t use traditional punctuation, like capitals, or periods. This is done usually to express the emotion of the poet. Shadows on the wall Noises down the hall Life doesn’t frighten me at all Bad dogs barking loud Big ghosts in a cloud Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

7 SENTENCE STRUCTURE Poets form their sentences a particular way to emphasize a certain part. Look at this one…. I heard a lonely sound in the night In the night, I heard a lonely sound

8 SOUND The sound of a poem helps to express the meaning and emotions of it. The sound of poetry comes in three ways Rhyme Rhythm Alliteration

9 What is a Rhyming Poem? A rhyming poem is a verse poem that contains rhyming words at the end of certain lines. Example: Night time by Lee Bennet Hopkins How do dreams know when to creep into my head when I fall off to Sleep?

10 Types of Rhyming Poems There are many types of rhyming poems. Here are names of some of them. The Couplet The Limerick The Ballad Stanza (including the short and long) Octaves

11 An Example of a Limerick
What is a limerick, Mother? It's a form of verse, said brother In which lines one and two Rhyme with five when it's through And three and four rhyme with each other. author unknown

12 The Purpose of Rhyming Poems
Rhyming poems are used mainly for humor. These poems are fun to read. Lets see some more poems with rhymes.

13 A Rhyming Poem Marty Smarty went to a party In her jumbo jet.
After tea she jumped in the sea And got her pants all wet. John Foster

14 More Rhymes Spaghetti! Spaghetti Spaghetti! Spaghetti!
You’re wonderful stuff, I love you, spaghetti, I can’t get enough. You’re covered with sauce And you’re sprinkled with cheese, Spaghetti! Spaghetti! Oh, give me some please. Jack Prelutsky

15 What is Alliteration? A poem with alliteration repeats the initial consonant sounds closely together. Example: Sheila Shorter sought a suitor; Shelia sought a suitor short. Sheila’s suitor sure to suit her; Short’s the suitor Sheila sought! by Michael Rosen

16 The Purpose of Alliteration Poems
Alliteration poems tend to be tongue twisters. They are written for the fun they bring when they are read. Lets see more poems with alliteration.

17 An Alliteration Poem Down the slippery slide they slid
Sitting slightly sideways; Slipping swiftly see them skid On holidays and Fridays.

18 Another Alliteration Poem
A fly and a flea flew up in a flue. Said the fly to the flea, “What shall we do?” “Let’s fly,” said the flea. “Let’s flee,” said the fly. So they fluttered and flew up a flaw in the flue.

19 More Tongue Twisters “Night, night, Knight”, said one Knight
to the other knight the other night. “Night, night, Knight.”

20 Super Tongue Twister! Esau Wood sawed wood. Esau Wood would saw wood. Oh, the wood that Wood would saw! One day Esau Wood saw a saw saw wood as no other woodsaw Wood ever saw would saw wood. Of all the woodsaws Wood ever saw saw wood, Wood never saw a woodsaw that would saw wood like the woodsaw Wood saw would saw wood. Now Esau Wood saws with that saw he saw saw wood.

21 What is Rhythm? Any poem has the chance of having rhythm.
A poem has rhythm if the reader of the poem gives the poem rhythm. For a poem to have rhythm, it has to be read following a pattern with its syllables. For example: da, da, dadada da da, da, da, dadada da da, da, da, dadada da da, da, da, dadada da da.

22 Example of Rhythm Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall and of all the king’s horses and all of the King’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again.

23 Practice Your Rhythm Clankity Clankity Clankity Clank!
Ankylosaurus was built like a tank, Its hide was a fortress as sturdy as steel, It tended to be an inedible meal. It was armored in front, it was armored behind, There wasn’t a thing on its minuscule mind, It waddled about on its four stubby legs, Nibbling on plants with a mouthful of pegs. Ankylosaurus was best left alone, Its tail was a cudgel of gristle and bone, Ankylosaurus was built like a tank. By: Jack Prelutsky

24 More Rhythm Practice Iguanodon, Iguanodon, Whatever made you fade,
You’ve traveled on, Iguanodon, We wish you could have stayed. We’ve sought you everywhere, Both here and yon, Iguanodon, But failed to find you there. You were a gentle kind, But now you’re gone, Iguanodon, And left your bones behind. By: Jack Prelutsky
