After discussing poetry in class, this was a homework assignment to practice writing poetry. This is a packet I sent home to engage families in student learning.
The packet includes sensory poetry, simile poetry, rhyming poetry, alliteration poetry, and acrostic poetry.
We used this to reinforce our unit on rhyme, rhythm and alliteration (aligning skills to the common core). I put the packet together for families to explore poetry over the course of the week, and we shared the published results on the Elmo-thus, reinforcing speaking/listening skills from the core too. Thanks for a great resource!
