This poetry book is one of my favorite writing activities in my classroom. The product includes everything you will need to help your students write seven complete poems.
Types of poems included are:
Examples written by me are also included in the packet so that you and your class have an idea of what I did with my students.
After your students complete their seven poems, you may choose to compile them into a book using the cover (in both color and black and white) that I have supplied.
I always wrap up my poetry unit with a Poetry Cafe where my students read a poem to their parents in front of the class, drink juice, eat doughnuts, and listen to jazz music as they are transported to a cafe (complete with fake candles, table cloths, and flowers) inside the classroom!

You will be amazed at how interested the students are in poetry after reading and writing their own!
Poetry can be taught anytime of the year, but remember April is poetry month!
