I have used your power point before and during our poetry unit. It is wonderful to have the kids refer back to the materials you provided. We have finished our poetry portfolios and they love them! Thank you!

I am currently using this with my poetry unit with my sixth graders. They have enjoyed writing all the different types of poems.
