Product Description
Writing Your Own Poetry is written for students 2nd – 5th and their teachers. The enjoyment of poetry is learned through interactive self-expression in lieu of reading someone else’s poetry. Starting with the definition of poetry and followed by helpful ‘Teacher tips’, these poetry lessons are completely editable as they are uploaded in Word docx.
“Teacher tips” include many ideas about poetry having to do with: audience, sharing, writing utensils, collecting, organizing, timing, and most importantly, how to come up with unique and interesting ideas of possible topics. The “Student Introduction” detailing a variety of thoughts about the free flowing nature of poetry may be posted in a center or poetry area.
This unit includes four types of poetry including Haiku, Tanka, I Am Poems, and Cinquain. Each variety of poem is introduced with a history of its origination, an explanation as to how it is a specific form, including its rules, and then distinctive examples are given. A student writing outline, including the rules, has been created for each poem as well. Most of these poems require a specific syllable count.
