Poetry Activity: This activity is a fun way to engage your students in creating free-verse poetry as they play with words and ideas.
OPTIONS FOR THIS ACTIVITY:
(students can work alone or in pairs)
-Give each student the same sheet and see how many variations you
can get with the same words.
-Give each student a different sheet (you may have to double up some).
-If each student has a different poem, have them complete one on their own, and then join up with a partner who has a different group of words to create a new poem. (They should write down their original poems before they create a new joint one)
-When they finish their poems they can just read them to the class, or you can provide paper and glue sticks and they can post their finished poems on the wall or bulletin board.
-Have an informal poetry reading where students have to come to the front of the class to present their poetry.
I have included an editable template so you can create new sheets.
