Earlier this week I released my newest Geography Unit for Ireland, so I thought the older kids, probably having already learned about Ireland would appreciate something a little different. I am really in to poetry and copywork right now with my oldest, so in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, I thought some Irish Poets Copywork was in order.

In this fun Irish Poets Copywork set, students are introduced to 3 Irish poets and 6 poems. This is a fun way to learn more about Ireland, the Irish and even their language! :: www.inallyoudo.net

I kept it fairly simple for the copywork and chose 3 more well-known poets from Ireland and a couple of their poems that are in the public domain. As always, I read through these on my own, but I do encourage you to read through them yourself and determine if they are appropriate for your child. 

To expand on this unit, have students research each poet included and write a basic report on them. There may be some unfamiliar words in the poems (since they are from Irish poets), so students will need to look those up as well. Keep a notebook of the definitions to refer back to them in the future.

If you’re just starting to learn about poetry, learning the definitions and different types, is a great place to start. But rather than re-write the different styles and their characteristics, I will refer you to this post on Young Writers that gives a description of each one.

    • W.B. Yeats (William Butler Yeats)
