This poetry activity Is it a poem? has been developed to support younger writers investigate the written features of texts to determine what attributes ‘poetry’ should or could have.
Included in the resource:
Teacher lesson plan and student instruction card
Freya Model graphic organiser
Two visible thinking routines
Mixed graphic organisers
The ‘features’ graphic organiser/checklist
Guiding question cards
Suggested text examples
A set of blank Guiding Question Cards so classes can generate their own questions
Due to copyright restrictions we cannot include a lot of poetry with this resource, however we have researched ideas and provided a suggested list of tests and poems that you can source and use easily.
