Product Description
In Let's Learn About Poetry your students will learn about 12 different types of poems and make a poetry book. As they learn about each poem, they will have the opportunity to write their own poem. Poems included:

1) Acrostic Poems
2) Autobiographical Poems
3) Cinquain Poems
4) Diamante Poems
5) Couplet Poems
6) Triplet Poems
7) Limerick Poems
8) Haiku Poems
9) Rebus Poems
10) Shape Poems
11) Free Verse Poems
12) Color Poems

Use of all these poems (or pick those that best suits the needs of your grade level) as students learn about different types of poems and create their own poetry books. Devote an entire month to researching poetry or focus on just one type of poem each month.

Standard 10 in Reading Literature {Common Core} for first through fifth grades states that "by the end of the year, students should be able to read and comprehend literature including POETRY." Meet this standard in your classroom with this Poetry unit.

Lesson Plans are included for each type of poem to help make teaching poetry in your classroom fun, enjoyable and easy!

Due to copyright laws, I am not able to include samples of poetry. However, I have provided you with a list of recommended poetry books and on-line resources that include poetry videos, poetry Power Points, poetry websites, and on-line examples for each type of poem included in this unit.

Be sure to check out the preview for a freebie of the Color Poem and lesson plan.
