Product Description
Creative Ideas for Writing Poetry!
Teaching Poetry Made EASY!

Poetry Pizzazz is a book filled with great ideas and tools for teaching poetry to students in grades 4–6. It presents fourteen different formats for writing poetry– from free verse to rhymed verse; from serious poems about nature to humorous poems to make kids laugh. Examples are included for each type of poem to illustrate the ideas presented.

Another feature of Poetry Pizzazz is a section called My Bedroom’s a Mess and Other Humorous Poems for Kids. This is a collection of sixteen humorous poems written by Linda Schwartz, a published poet and author of more than three hundred activity books for teachers. These original poems are ideal to read aloud and come with a list of suggested ways to use them in your classroom.

There is also a list of more than 140 topics for kids to write about that is especially useful for students who have difficulty getting started or thinking of an idea for their poems. The topics covered in these lists include:

• Mammals

• Reptiles

• Amphibians

• Insects

• Nature

• People

• Things

• Places

• Feelings and Emotions.

Another great feature of Poetry Pizzazz is a list of rhyming word families to help your students when writing poems that rhyme. From bake, cake, snake to clock, flock, sock – these rhyming words will be put to good use throughout the school year. Your students can add words to each of these lists or create new rhyming word lists for words with other endings.
