After reading the Poetry Sounds Notes in the FILES section of the Canvas, Choose either “Strawberrying” or “The Word Plum”. I will provide you materials for the poems and please answer the following question below.
1. Does the poem rhyme? If it does, show the words that rhyme. Are there any slant rhymes used? Why do you think the author decided to do this?
2. Does the poem use any alliteration (repeating the initial consonant sound)? If so, show examples of alliteration.
3. Does the poem use any assonance (repeating vowel sounds)? If so, show examples of assonance in the poem.
4. After reading the poem aloud, how do the sounds being used in the poem assist with its overall meaning? Note any changes in mood, tone, or point of view as well.
