Jenga Poetry is an engaging and fun game. Students use the numbered Jenga blocks and a Jenga Poetry Tracker Sheet to write a poem.

Students play Jenga as usual, but as they play, they keep track of the numbered Jenga blocks they remove. Each numbered Jenga block corresponds to a word, poetry term, or other direction on the Jenga Poetry Tracker Sheet. Once students have checked off at least 10 different (or any number you choose) Jenga blocks, they will be ready to start writing a poem.

Great for literacy and learning stations! Perfect for National Poetry Month!

**No need to glue or tape anything to your Jenga blocks. Simply number each block. The Jenga Poetry Tracker Sheet has all the information students will need to write their poem.

Here's what you get:

  • Teacher and student directions including how to set up and play Jenga
  • Jenga Poetry Tracker Sheet, including an EDITABLE version
  • Poetry Peer Conference Form
  • *Note: I did not supply a rubric for this creative activity. This is in accordance with my educational philosophy as listed in my profile. Sometimes it's good to just let the students create and learn just for education's sake.

You will need to supply:

Enough Jenga block sets (or similar blocks) for each group of 3-4 students

*Use a Sharpie to number each end of each Jenga block (1-54)
