Starting the year off with a Fall Poetry unit has never been more fun or creative!
The students will learn about three forms of poetry (Couplet, Triplet, and Quatrain), all concerning rhyme scheme and pattern. Each form of poetry has an actual LESSON PLAN to help you teach the form!
They will then write their own poems, all within the same topic of "Fall". Since the season is universal, and they can write about what they see around them, it should be accessible to all students in your classroom. To help them along, there is a brainstorming page with many different pictures of "Fall" designed to get their creative juices flowing!
Finally, all of the poems will be written on leaves and mounted on a tree trunk, to form a "Poet-Tree"! The students get to be creative here, enjoying time to not only do some art, but write as well.
Makes a great display as well as providing differentiated rigor for each level of student represented in your room.
Classroom tested. Great for a center, independent work, whole class instruction....even homework!
