A POETRY MUST HAVE!! WEEKLY POETRY OPPORTUNITIES! This resource quickly gets students creating their own poetry & poetry folders. With more than 30 poetry activities included, these lessons can be used in a variety of ways: large or small group settings, EASY (weekly) CENTER activities, and/or as extensions to book studies, character studies, and/or research projects.
It is nice to have a poetry extension that you can grab and add to any other topic such as: seasons (winter, spring, summer, & fall), 5 senses, animal studies, or when discussing historical figures such as: presidents, Black History, biographies/autobiographies, etc.
This packet is FULL of reading & language skills such as: similes, synonyms, adjectives, nouns, verbs, setting, character, etc. This document also includes a variety of STEM & art opportunities such as: block building, shape creations, crayon melts, play dough or clay poetry.
There is a variety of poems used throughout this packet including: acrostic, cinquain, diamante, tanka, & more. This is also a handy resource to add to any substitute folder!
Also included within this document, is information on setting up a "Poetry Cafe" day. During a "Poetry Cafe" students share the poems they have created throughout the year. In all my years of teaching, this is always a favorite memory for my students! Celebrating their poetry always builds confidence & pride in their work, and it also instills a great love & appreciation for poetry.
NOTE: There are over 30 blank sheets included here. Please note that in several of the poems the subject or title was left blank, which will allow you or your students to select the subject of your (or their) choosing. This is handy when doing book reports or research projects. Bottom line, you can turn the more than 30 sheets included in this packet... into hundreds of lessons!!
HAPPY POETRY WRITING!!
