I absolutely love writing poetry and inspiring children to believe in themselves as poets! These task cards are designed to do just that! They are laid out in pairs. The first card of each pair is a specific type of poem written in such a way that the example poem actually follows the form of the poem while teaching the writer the poem formula. The second card of the pair will give further teaching prompts and then encourage writers to try it on their own. The poetry types featured in this product include limerick, couplet, acrostic, quatrain, haiku, jingle, cinquain, and picture poems. I hope that these poetry task cards will inspire your little poets! Also look at my store for the accompanying posters!
