This is a 31 page PDF presentation covering various reason for writing poetry. It has graphics, images, and over 25 poems or poem excerpts.
I created this presentation for a class while I was getting my Master's degree. We had to create a unit plan to teach during our classroom observation, and chose to study poetry with some middle schoolers. :D
This presentation is a perfect introduction for the wild world of poetry. It’s also a great way for students to extend their learning and delve into a poetry project.
A Powerpoint version is included if you would like to make changes for your own classroom.
As an added bonus, my Beginning Blends graphic is included for free. This is a great resource for helping students learn about rhyming words.
I have a poetry compilation product for the middle school ages that is perfect as an introduction to poetry. CLICK HERE TO VIEW.
