This is a 30 page poetry unit based on the theme of Christmas. I am surprised at myself. I find that I have this urge, later in life, to write poetry. I do not mean “stuffy” (as the kids would say) but, hopefully, fun poetry. I am enjoying this new side of me, as I am also finding that story ideas are coming to me out of “nowhere”.
I digress, I have written all of the poem in this unit. All of the poems require the students to think about the words and answer questions or write poetry themselves. Each of the poetry activities are different and require different skills from your students.
I have written a poem titled “Prepare for the Day.” And the students need to think about what happens on Christmas Day, students will write a poetry storyboard, illustrate, answer questions about the poems, they will write their own poetry,
Bookmarks to be had and the opportunity to write poetry using a Christmas picture.
I do hope that you students enjoy completing this unit as much as I enjoyed writing it.
