This book gives students a chance to learn about and create various types of poetry. It covers acrostic, picture, color, cinquain, rhyming, haiku, alliteration, and free verse poems. It also includes some Shakespeare excerpts. The book is pages 1-39 which I print out and staple into books for the students. The rough drafts for each type of poem are pages 40-52 which I print out separately and hand out when we've learned about a certain poem. I have used this book in both 4th and 5th grade and the students have absolutely loved it. They get to be creative yet we cover various parts of speech, similes and metaphor and figurative language. It is a nice break from regular reading class. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to finish.
