SUGGESTIONS FOR USE:
In my 6th grade class, I print off this entire packet and give one to each student. We spend three days going over the different types of poems through shared writing examples and reviewing parts of speech. The directions in this packet are quite detailed and not much instruction is needed. If students are allowed 45-60 minutes a day to work, this project can be completed in about four to five weeks, typing and illustrating included. Illustrated work in my class basically means scrap-booked on fancy paper.
