Transcript of Personification: Classroom Lesson

Examples Personification Essential Question: How do I interpret the use of personification in writing? What word do you see that you know in the word personification?
How do you think that word can help you understand what the word personification means? Think, Pair, Share The giving of human qualities to inanimate (not alive) objects, ideas, or animals.
These human qualities include thoughts, feelings, and actions. Personification The flowers begged for water. The sun played hide and seek with the clouds. The warm fireplace seemed to be calling my name. Read the poem.
As we are reading, think about what is being personified. Time to Practice The basketball swished
As the ball dived right through
It was a great shot, this much is true
The buzzer let out it’s nasally laugh
The end of the quarter, the end of the half

The game did resume when the ref’s whistle barked
‘Players get ready’, their interest was sparked
It was a tough game, the court became scuffed
The brooms cleaned and polished, and made it all buffed The backboard was aching, as the shots kept on coming Despite its best efforts, the ball kept on drumming
We had so much fun, the basket was tired
And all of the players were hot and perspired. The Basketball Game

She’s constantly dancing all over the page.
Just like a ballerina, she prances and twirls.
Especially when she’s writing cursive.
At the end of the day, she heads home to her desk,
Where she spends the night resting to prepare for another day’s dancing. Example On your exit slip…
