Poetry! Poetry is one of my favorite things to share with my students! The unique use of language, reading and writing words that come alive right on the page is so fascinating. This power point helps students understand 11 different kinds of poetry. It includes the definition of each kind of poem along with an example of each one. So, not only do students learn to identify each of the 11 kinds of poems, they have notes that help them write them as well. I always check out book sets from our library to show even more examples of these kinds of poems. Then, after immersing my students in the poetry, I watch their own writing come to life as they become some of the most creative poets I've ever met. Enjoy using this power point to teach acrostic (2 kinds), alliteration, cinquain, couplet, diamante, free verse, haiku, quatrain, shape, limerick, and parody poems.
