This file includes 9 styles of poetry appropriate for elementary aged children. It includes a colorful sample for each style and a black and white page for the student's creations. The nine formats included are Diamond, Clerihew, Cinquain, Haiku, A-B-C, Acrostic, Concrete, Sensory, and Descriptive. The format samples can be used as posters for the classroom or all pages can be put together to make a poetry instructional and practice book for each student. It's a great way to get students excited about poetry and try their hands at some creative writing. It's also a creative way to sneak in some grammar and parts of speech mini lessons!
