Connotation, Denotation, and Figurative Language in "The Sea" by J. Reeves

Connotation, Denotation, and Figurative Language in "The Sea" by J. Reeves

“The Sea” by James Reeves is OFTEN used in state tests, worksheets, and anthologies. It is short, but provides a lot to discuss. It is straightforward, and yet still complex. The imagery is superb. Almost all of it is within the grasp of the student, and yet there are parts that need discussion to be revealed. All in all, it is a perfect poem to use with a class! Due to copyright laws, I am unable to include the poem. It is easy to find and is likely in your anthology. Included is a lesson plan originally written for 7th graders- appropriate for grades 6-12. This is a PowerPoint, lesson plan AND worksheet. The PowerPoint includes: the Essential Question Activating Strategy Defined vocabulary and Examples. Students will learn figurative language, metaphor and simile. They will see examples and create some new ones. Next, they will learn denotation and connotation. Again, they will see examples and try their hand at examples. Finally, they will apply this knowledge to the poem, "The Sea" by James Reeves. After reading through once, students will answer questions about the first stanza and discuss. Then, the teacher (and PowerPoint) will guide them to answer the essential question based on the first stanza. The second stanza will be read, questions will be answered, and the essential question will be attempted again, discussed and perfected. Finally, the third stanza will be the focus of the assessment. The students will again read and answer questions, but this time, the students will be expected to use the strategy taught (re-read, locate, investigate and compare) to answer the essential question on their own. There are more slides after the poem study is over, including an activity to write the poem in as few words as possible (to illustrate how word choice is important) as well as an exit ticket. I hope you enjoy this lesson! Thank you!

Spelled-out fractions 5.) Self- words 6.) Well- words 7.) With figures or letter 8.) Between a prefix and a capitalized word 9.) New word blends 10.)

Calling all Home Ec and Culinary teachers... Looking for a food recipe? These are MY recipes: crock pot recipes, easy recipes... all of my favorites. And this growing collection of recipes is editable! Recently updated with extra recipes! I’ve tried and loved these recipes over the years. I've made notes on them and tweaked them to my taste. My 12-year old son complimented with, “Mom, can you make sure I have all of your recipes before you die?” That lovely (albeit odd) request led me to begin typing up my recipes. And since I have an older son who lives half a country away, I decided to make a Christmas gift of a recipe book. This undertaking was not as easy as it sounds. I typed, printed, laminated, AND inserted recipes into a recipe book (bought at Michael’s with my 40% off coupon: Score!). Bonus: All of my own scattered recipes are also laminated and neatly organized. Extra Bonus: They are ready to assemble for my next child with the click of a button. Extra Bonus Plus: They are ready to include in my store for gourmands like you! These recipes are editable. You may not like onions. You may not want the name “Jack’s Potato Soup.” I almost neutralized them, but decided against it. Feel free to click, cut, and “fix” to your liking. Another way to use these? Print, laminate, stack, and tie with a fancy ribbon for a great TEACHER'S GIFT! It’s inexpensive, easy, and will be treasured! If you are the Homeroom parent, this is a great gift for the teacher. The recipe cards include: --Spinach- Stuffing Bites --The BEST Chicken Salad --Chinese Chicken Salad --Chicken Wreath --Chase Pasta Bake --Sausage Surprise --Oreo Balls --Avalanche Cookies --Braden’s Broccoli Casserole --Rose’s Microwaved Scalloped Potatoes --Slow Cooker Macaroni --Chocolate Chip Fluff and much, much more!

Crocodiles , Alligators ... Crocodilian !

Crocodiles and Alligators are intriguing subject matter! This product contains a lesson plan, 2 Powerpoints, a two-page worksheet, and a graphic organizer. Also included is an activity for students to draw what Crocs might look like in 200 million years. Students will discuss: What do Crocodiles eat? What characteristics have helped them survive while other species have become extinct? What would you name a crocodile? (although this is more of a creative "brain break," I've included names of crocs at our Texas zoo- in 2014.) How can a crocodile breathe and look around while submerged? How many species are there? and much more. Many crocodile body parts are discussed (teeth, eyes, tail, etc) as well as habits (inability to sweat, sounds, buoyancy, etc.) This 2 day lesson gives the option of allowing to use the graphic organizer to further research certain species and note findings. Teachers in grades 4-7 may choose to delete some of the more academic slides and keep the presentation simple. The PowerPoints are editable for that reason. (Originally, this lesson was created for an 8th grade class.) Thanks!!
