Writing poetry can be so much fun, especially if there’s a something great to do with it! The Paper Bag Poetry Book is perfect for students to create and show off their writing.
All you need is a copy of each templates, 3 lunch bags per student, glue sticks and general art supplies (markers, crayons, stickers, etc.). You may choose to place a stack of templates in a literacy/writing center and let students have fun writing their own poems, complete the poems and books together as a whole class activity, or use the templates in your math, history, or science lessons to summarize and review important content. Templates can also be used in Interactive Notebooks – perfect size!
Give your students an opportunity to share their poetry, either with each other, another class, or during an Author’s Tea/Celebration with parents and special guests. With a little extra motivation of a celebration, your students will work even harder writing their very best poems.
Your purchase of the Paper Bag Poetry Book gives you the rights to make copies for your own individual classroom. It does not allow you to share with other colleagues. Please do not share via email, uploading to a shared server (such as Google Docs, school server/website) or posting to a blog. Each of these would be a violation to copyright laws. You may purchase additional licenses to share at a half priced discount.
Enjoy writing with your students! Martha from “The Owl Spot”
