Reflection: Student Feedback Poetry: Hyperbole - Section 4: Practicing the Skill


Students really struggled with this type of figurative language. Part of it was my fault. While these short lessons serve a purpose, sometimes the speed by which we move from one topic to another is entirely too fast! Some topics, such as similes and rhyme, can easily be covered in a day or so as most third grade students have some working knowledge of both topics. However, with a concept like hyperboles, we really needed more than just a quick overview for students truly to understand. That wasn’t possible, unfortunately, with this unit, but a great thing to keep in mind if trying this out in your own classroom!
