This file contains 11 Types of poems for students to use to create a poetry book. It has directions, originations (of some, not all) of the specific types of poems as well as examples. I used this on my Smartboard to display as we went through the types of poetry together. We finally created final drafts that we illustrated and added an "About the Author" page at the end. Students and parents loved this project. I have even had a poetry reading at the end where my students shared their work with the public.
