connection and teaching point
Connection and Teaching Point
  • We have learned how authors use physical objects as symbols for themes and ideas in texts.
  • Today we will learn how to explore symbolism in poetry.

  • We have learned that while reading poetry, it is important to read poems multiple times.
  • The first time you read a poem is for enjoyment, the second time is for meaning, and the third time is for appreciation.
  • One of the ways we can appreciate poetry is to appreciate the symbolism present.
  • Let’s read “Dust of Snow” by Robert Frost.
  • The first time we read the poem will be just for enjoyment.

“Dust of Snow”Robert Frost

The way a crow

Shook down on me

The dust of snow

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day I had rued.

Second Reading
  • Now, let’s read the poem a second time for meaning.
  • As I read, I am going to pick out one to two words from each line that I think are important and highlight them.

important words
Important Words
  • crow, shook, down, snow, from, tree, heart, change, mood, saved, part, day, rued
  • Now that I have identified important words, let’s look over the words to see if they will help us understand the meaning of the poem.
  • Lets look at the literal meaning of the poem.
  • A crow shook snow on the speaker from a tree.
  • The way the crow did this changed the speaker’s mood and saved a part of his time of grief.
