Poetry Blast for Grades 4 - 6 is an invaluable resource for intermediate teachers that are trying to find a more interesting way of teaching poems within their language arts unit.
Every single poetry type has an information page about the origins of the poem, its structure or form, poetry scheme and any other relative data about the poem as well as an example. Along with the information page is at least one high-quality worksheet to use in class.
This version includes commonly used poetry types like: autobiographical, ballad, cinquain, diamante, haiku and limericks. However, it also includes fun and interesting poetry types that may not normally be used in the classroom like: epigram, kennings, lyric, renga, terza rima and triolet.
There are other versions of Poetry Blast available for grades 1 - 3 and 7 - 9 but it is highly recommended to check out the full version of Poetry Blast for all elementary and middle school grades.
