This is perfect for my Grade 3 class! The pages were colourful and bright and very kid friendly. Great exemplars! We had a Poetry Reading at the end of the unit with an MC who explained the poems. We displayed them with a Doc.Cam while kids read theirs and had parents in as audience members. Great unit I will use every spring! Thank you!

This is a great way to introduce ten different types of poetry. The mini-poster (which could be blown up) for each type of poem includes a definition and an example. Then each type of poem has a planning page to support students as they write their own poetry. This resource is awesome!
On  March 10, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Thank you so much for such thoughtful, kind feedback! I'm so happy you are pleased with this purchase and hope it is a great way for your kids to have fun with poetry. :) Take care! :)

Hi There,
Is there a plan that goes along with this? I see lots of great ideas, but I'm VERY rusty on poetry, so it would be helpful to have a plan to follow so I don't look too out of practice.Thanks!

On  January 31, 2014Miss DeCarbo answered:

On  March 25, 2013Bryn Even-The Primary Patch (TpT Seller) asked:
I was looking at your preview and I think there's a typo in your Haiku poem planning page because it says "the sun shine brightly". Just found another in your bio poem in the instructions. I love the look of this unit but don't want to have to pay and then proofread it. Bryn
