On this worksheet, students begin with a review of the parts of speech. Students then read a diamante to determine the pattern of the poem and other characteristics. Next, students work with a group to brainstorm words that will be combined with the rest of the class to create a diamante poem about rain. Finally, students can write their own diamante on a template. An answer key is included.
April is Poetry Month, but also great for any time of the year! Could also be used when reinforcing antonyms or parts of speech.
