This two page worksheet helps students step into poetry and write their own original work. This worksheet is ideal for students who just can never get started when asked to write poetry. I've used this successfully from Year 5 to Year 11 as a starting point for students.
The first page gets students to create easy list-like poems called lunes based on a moment in a student's life. The second page shows students how to transform those lists into linked ideas and stanzas. There are also fast-finisher activities to extend students. You can use this worksheet over and over again in any poetry writing unit.
