Looking for something a bit more special than an acrostic poem? Try this Mother's Day/Special Ladies' Day poetry pack! Pack includes three unique poetry lessons for easy poems that capture more feeling and develop deeper meaning than your average "MOTHER" acrostic poem! A sample/model poem of each type is included, as well as a fill-in-the-blank form for each poem that serves as a graphic organizer for student thinking and scaffolded tool for writing the poem. Finally, each poem type includes a variety of publishing paper options with different titles/clip art to suit individual student needs and family situations (for moms, grandmas, aunts, from boy children, girl children, etc.).
Poem types include:
My Mother's Hands: a poem in which students use the symbol of a mother's (or grandmother's, etc.) hands to represent the love a mother gives through the action of her hands.
My Mom and I Are a Team: a poem that highlights the bond between a mother and child through snapshots of teamwork and togetherness.
At My Grandma's House: a poem in which students signify the importance of home by describing that special place using the five senses.
The poetry forms scaffold this creative writing in a way that produces similarly written poems that are very unique to each student. The poems are easy to write and multiple versions can be written for all of the special ladies in a child's life! These poems will be keepsakes for years to come. You won't regret the time you spend with students on this special Mother's Day project!
