This is a great way to get your students creatively writing sonnets, limmericks, odes, haikus, couplets, and free verse poetry. Students will apply their knowledge of capitalization and punctuation rules, complex sentences, linking and helping verbs, nouns, adjectives, and prepositions. After viewing this guide, you and your students will be able to create other examples of poetry that apply various skills. This can also be used as an assessment tool after a skill has been taught. I would use this as a pre/post test.
