This freebie is the first activity of my new book, Writing Vessels. It is a paper fortune cookie that can be used for inserting figures of speech such as similes, metaphors, idioms and rhyming couplets. The lesson includes examples of how to use the cookie, a pattern (student template) and step-by-step photographs of how to fold the cookie. This activity can easily be adapted to other writing activites as well. Common Core Standards aligned to poetry are included.
