Take the confusion out of writing different types of poetry with this user friendly poetry booklet for your students!! This kid-friendly booklet introduces students to all different types of poetry including COUPLETS, HAIKU, CINQUAIN, FREE VERSE, LIMERICK, SHAPE POEM, COLOR POEM, and ACROSTIC!! For each type of poetry it gives an explanation of the format and an example...so no more "Mrs.______, what do I do again??"
Before getting into specific types of poetry, though, this handly little booklet gives an "Anatomy of a Poem" page and explains LINES, STANZAS, and RHYME. It then introduces students to some basic figurative language elements - SIMILES, METAPHORS, ALLITERATION, and REPETITION - and even allows students the chance to practice each of these so they are able to utilize these elements in their poetry writing later on.
I loved teaching poetry so much more with this awesome booklet this year...it was so much more organized and it allowed my kids to tune into specific types of poetry and learn to enjoy and appreciate each one. If a child really like a certain type of poem and wanted to write more examples of one type, I just reproduced that page for them and added it to their booklet...so easy!
