Description

Here is everything you need to teach your students how to write 7 different types of poems. Each type of poem is explained in detail, along with an example of each to analyze with your students. For each type of poem, there is also a "Your Turn" sheet for the students to compose their own poem, using the guidelines provided. Best of all, your students can store everything in a unique accordion envelope book!

Don't know how to make an accordion envelope book? No worries! This 39 page download includes black line masters and step by step photo directions for making the poetry accordion envelope book with your students.

PLEASE NOTE: The accordion book requires 8 business-sized, (4⅛ inch x 9½ inch) envelopes per student. I bought boxes of 40 at the dollar store, which cost $5 for a class of 25.

This kit contains the following parts:

1. "Pockets of Poetry" envelope book cover

2. 8 envelope labels

3. 12 poetic device cards with terms, definitions, and examples of each (rhythm, repetition, rhyme, couplet, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, alliteration, imagery, personification, tone, theme)

4. Limerick poem- 2 page inserts (how to write/example, and "your turn" page)

5. Haiku poem- 2 page inserts (how to write/example, and "your turn" page)

6. Cinquain poem- 2 page inserts (how to write/example, and "your turn" page)

7. Acrostic poem- 2 page inserts (how to write/example, and "your turn" page)

8. Shape poem- 2 page inserts (how to write/example, and "your turn" page)
