PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

POETRY PACKAGE - This comprehensive poetry package includes some of my BEST SELLING poetry items on TpT! Includes Bonus Figurative Language Worksheet as well as detailed poetry writing rubric! Everything you need for all of the poetry projects (and 1 bonus worksheet!) is included in this poetry package.

Download the preview for full details. This package would cost over $12 if all the poetry assignments were purchased individually!

"Pet Peeve Poem - Practice Writing With Similes"
Students read a poem rich in similes and then write their own poem in a similar style. Great practice for identifying similes! Students love the opportunity to use similes to write a poem about their pet peeves!

"My Life in 30 Words" Poetry Activity
Have students write a 30 word poem about themselves. Includes assignment sheet, brainstorming worksheet, templates and examples. Great for Back to School!

"From Prose to Poetry"
Using short newspaper articles as a prompt, students write a poem using the images and ideas in the articles. Unique way to show students the difference between prose and poetry and have them work with both genres.

"Imagery Poem"
Using a short poem with imagery as an example, students write their own poem. Includes assignment sheet, brainstorming sheet and more!

"Hero Music" - Music Lyrics as Poetry
Using music lyrics as an example of poetry, students pick songs that best exemplify the idea of a hero. My students love this activity because of the music aspect!

"Poetry Poster / Mind Map"
A fun way to review or practice poetry terms / figurative language! Students create a themed poster and write their own examples of figurative language. Simile, metaphor, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, rhyme, alliteration & personification.

"Laughing With Limericks"
Templates and examples of a limerick - a fun poetry activity! Lots of fun for St. Patrick's Day

Figurative Language Reference Sheet
A quick one page review sheet / reference sheet for figurative language. I like my students to keep this page handy in their notebooks for quick review.

I don't seem to be able to find the Poetry Poster/Mind Map activity in the content downloaded.

On  October 8, 2013Addie Williams answered:
Hi - so sorry! I must've forgotten to add the file in my last update. It's fixed, so you can download the file again and fill ALL the individual poetry assignments there.

Thanks for letting me know!

On  May 12, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I downloaded the packet, which looks wonderful, but it will not print. My Adobe is updated, but I keep getting a message that says "The document will not print; there are no selected pages to print." I've never seen this message before, and the set up on my printer looks fine, but when I hit print, I keep getting this message." Any ideas what to do?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 12, 2013Addie Williams answered:
Weird... I have never heard of that error before. My first suggestion is to update Adobe and that usually fixes issues. I've sold 100s of this package so I don't think it's an error with the file. Have you googled the error msg? I could send you a copy of the file by email later today and you could see if that helps. I won't be home for a few hours but if you leave your email we could try that? Or email me at Addie.education@yahoo.com. Sorry you are having trouble!
On  August 23, 2012Juggling ELA  (TpT Seller) asked:
Do you think this is good for high school students? I teach 11th and 12th grade.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 23, 2012Addie Williams answered:
Good question... I've mostly used it with grades 6-10 and with remedial grade 11 students. The assignments are pretty easy to make more challenging... You could ask for longer poems, more detailed examples of figurative language. I think it would depend on how you presented the projects and laid out your expectations. The only thing that might be too basic would be the imagery poem... But you could always add to it. Thanks!

On  March 6, 2012Addie Williams answered:
Beth2378 - no worries, after I read through the assignment again I thought the suggestion was excellent... it didn't take long to change it. Thanks so much for being so kind in your comments. Hope you have fun with the assignments.
On  March 5, 2012Elizabeth Cabrera (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Addie,

I just downloaded your poetry pack. I am looking forward to using some of the activities with my students. I wanted to provide you some feedback but did not want to leave it on the Ratings & Feedback page because I didn't want others to see it as a negitive. In the packet you included an activity called From Prose to Poetry. I like the idea and will find a way to tweek it to fit my classroom. I am a surprised that this pack has newpaper clippings that talk about guns and underage drinking. I don't feel these activities are appropriate for grade school students.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 5, 2012Addie Williams answered:
Hi Beth2378 - thanks for the feedback and the question. You gave me some great 'food for thought' and as a result I've added a revised version of that assignment and changed both articles to make them more appropriate for younger students. I now have two worksheets (a younger version and a more mature version). Thanks again for taking the time to send a question. Please download the package again and you'll get the revised "grade school" version. Thanks so much! Addie
