One Minute in Time Poems

Focus on the writing traits of idea development and word choice in this Six-Trait lesson. Young learners examine the figurative language in "10:15 on Saturday Night” by the Cure, and write their own free verse poetry inspired by the lyrics. Use this activity in your lesson about word choice.

Donna S.
After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
