This should be taught in one class session-or broken up depending on your class schedule.
This lesson is a diamante poetry lesson. This lesson features a lesson plan, 3 brainstorming sheets, final copy worksheet, class pattern and poetry poster.
My tip! Use whatever brainstorming sheet works best with your class. I've taught this 5 times and its been different with each class-that is why there are so many. The single subject is for use with a partner. Project the pattern on the board when they're brainstorming and writing to get rid of confusion with the noun line.
I taught my lesson and projected the poetry poster on the smartboard, and printed it out afterwards. This is a part of my Poetry Picnic Unit. Find this unit and other lessons on my shop!
