Students will enjoy creating their own poetry book with these 6 kid friendly poem patterns. The format for each poem is given along with an example for each that I created. Students may choose a different topic for each poem OR center all 6 poems around one topic. Students can typically create 1 poem per class period. I have them create a rough draft to be edited either by myself or a peer before tranfering the final draft to either copy paper or Manila paper. Students may add color by writing in rainbow colors and adding colored illustrations. At the end, students create a front cover giving their Poetry Book a title and using their name as author and illustrator. Then staple all poems together in a book format with 3 staples going along left side.
