In Mrs. Bragg’s English Language Arts classes, students have been studying poetry. Students spent the entire poetry unit learning about poetic devices, figurative language, sound devices, and the different types of poetry As a culminating, and hands-on activity, students participated in a musical poetry project last week! They brought in music of their choice, and analyzed the song lyrics for various pieces of figurative language. The students then presented their projects to the class, and they played the music for each of their songs as they helped their other classmates understand the different devices in the lyrics. Students really had a great time connecting poetry with music, especially when it applied to their favorite songs!
