Beginning Figurative Language: Color Poems

April is poetry month.  I have several free poetry lessons I plan to share here on Classroom Freebies this month. I love using poetry in mini-lessons to introduce and practice a number of ELA standards.

Color Poems is a way of introducing metaphors and similes to elementary students.  This packet contains step-by-step directions and a set of mentor texts.  You can find Color Poems at this post here on Artistry of Education.
