Task Cards

Poetry Task Cards is a set of 30 cards about types of poems and poetry terms. Students identify specific types of poems, write their own original poems, and work with poetry terms.

For each type of poem, there are two cards. One asks the student to find an example of that type of poem and then to describe how that type of poem is formed. The second card about each type of poem gives directions and asks students to write a poem of their own.

The poetry terms include the basics of figurative language, imagery, and poetry format with activities that include matching and other types of questions.

Slide Presentation

The slide presentation begins by explaining to students how writing poetry can improve their overall writing skills and strengthen the connection between their writing and what they read. It goes on to address poetry elements that students can easily incorporate into their own writing and then ideas for revising their poems. The student activities include writing a variety of short, fun poems including diamante, clerihew, haiku, and a blackout poem.

Studying and writing poems helps students improve their reading and vocabulary skills as well as their skills at writing. Poetry skills such as using figurative language and imagery or writing within a limited format carry over to other types of reading materials and other forms of writing as well.

Writing poetry supports a number of the reading, vocabulary, and writing standards including strengthening the reading-writing connection, writing a variety of types of text, and using imagery, strong vocabulary, and figurative language.
