PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This poetry booklet activity is a great way to culminate a poetry unit or provide students with an independent poetry project. It also makes a great small group activity with students working together to create one booklet.

Poetry activity sheets are provided for the following types of poems:
1. Haiku
2. Quatrain
3. Lantern
4. Cinquain
5. Tanka

Each activity sheet has a definition of the poem type and an example as well as space for the student to write a rough draft. These activity sheets are even great to use if you are not using the booklet part of the activity.

I have provided both color and black and white copies (which the students can color themselves) of the poetry booklet. The booklet is in burger form with two buns for the covers. The pages inside (or burger ingredients) are where students write their good copies of the poems. Stack all the burger ingredients together, add a few staples on one side, and you have a delicious sample of student poetry!

The finished product makes a fun bulletin board display as well. Another fun idea is to host a Poetry Picnic where classmates circulate and sample classmates' poems. Use checkered tablecloths for real picnic effect!

Please download the preview and view the thumbnails to see some sample pages.
