Color poems are easy and fun to write, so this lesson makes a great end-of-the-year writing activity. Color Poetry Magic includes a teacher's guide with detailed lesson plans, ready-to-use printables, and Google Classroom resources. You can preview every page in this product by clicking the Preview link above.

The color poetry lesson begins with students brainstorming the sights, sounds, feelings, and actions they associate with a color and recording their ideas on a Color Poetry Palette graphic organizer. Next, they select their favorite words and phrases and use them to create vivid images. Finally, students combine those phrases to create a free verse poem filled with imagery. The color poems that result from this activity are almost magical, and your kids will love sharing them!

The poetry writing activity described in this product is similar to the color poem activity in myApril Teaching Resources pack. However, the lesson plan in this product is much more detailed, and this product includes Google Classroom resources, too.
