Looking for a fun project for Back to School or National Poetry Month? I use this poem project at the beginning of the year to help students get to know one another. This project is also perfect for use in a Poetry Unit or for National Poetry Month.

What's Included?

*Example Pictures


*Poem template

*5 different black and white boy patterns

*5 different black and white girl patterns.

I tried to include a diverse choice of children. Kiddos color the patterns whatever color they choose.

Activity Ideas

The day before the project, I have one copy of each taped to the board or laid out on a table and I simply have kiddos sign up for which one they want by writing their name on the paper. Then I copy that many and hand them out the next day. I like to give my kiddos choices.

The red dots are where students use a dot of liquid glue to secure one piece of M&M candy. This is a great intro or reminder of contractions. I have found that kiddos must press the M&M on lightly and then leave it to dry.

The black rectangle is for students to write their name with a white crayon (or white paint pen). Make sure to glue onto construction paper for sturdiness.

I complete a poem about myself to model for students. We then brainstorm ways someone can be unique and special.


Make sure to check for peanut allergies. I use Smarties and write “M” on with a sharpie for students who cannot touch M&M’s. Do not use M&M’s in your classroom if a student has a severe peanut allergy in which they cannot even be around peanuts.
