Students need to develop literacy skills that help them recognize and understand important literary elements. Poetry is a great way to teach about literary elements—and Sara Teasdale's "Spring Rain" is a perfect poem for a lesson on foreshadowing and flashback. It's also a great text for teaching about verb tenses, especially past tense, past perfect tense, and switching tenses in a passage. This printable set features a copy of the poem, plus two teacher pages that provide background information, teaching tips, discussion prompts, questions that reinforce the learning, and more.
Encourage students to use Teasdale's poem as a springboard to write flashback poems of their own.
