Looking for an easy back-to-school or getting-to-know-your activity? Are you introducing poetry to your students? Even if you're just looking for a way to break up your regular routine without sacrificing rigor and teaching time, this FREE "I Am" Poem Activity will be a great addition to your teaching calendar!
This is a complete lesson--lesson plan, handout, and Google Slides presentation--for teaching and guiding high school students through writing an I Am poem. This is a simple poem, perfect for building confidence in young writers and giving students who "don't know what to write about" a place to start.
The slideshow introduces two literary terms (line and stanza), which are reviewed in the worksheet. The slideshow also provides an EDITABLE slide for you to add in your own I am poem--a great way to build relationships with your students and show them that is ok to share writing out loud.
