April is National Poetry Month teachers!!!
Poetry has never been easier for your little ones!
Students can actually play with words and repetition and thus be a real Poet.
• *Anaphora - I AM poem: Have your students look at a mirror and see themselves before they complete in the blanks. They can be silly, serious, or use rhymes to fill in the blanks!
• “as” Poem: have your students put any title and use similes to describe that object. For example: “Moon” shiny as silver, big as a star, etc.
• *Epimone - How is my planet? My planet is my home…My planet is beautiful, etc.

• This is an Amazing World: Have your students complete in the blanks. Let them be creative and make up words.
