These pages explain step by step how to write 8 different types of poetry. The different forms include: ode, free verse, rhyme, metaphor, haiku, diamonte, rap/song, and the couplet. Each worksheet explains the characteristics of the type of poem, specific instructions on writing the poem, and multiple examples. I have students create a poetry book using 4 of the 8 types. The worksheets really help them get started on their own.
