Included in this packet are four “poetry centers”. This is a way that I ended my poetry unit. In station one they write their own poem. A graphic organizer assists them in writing a poem that appeals to all five senses. Station two they play a game with vocabulary terms commonly taught during poetry units (couplet, tercet, quatrain, rhyme, rhythm, meter, free verse, and prose). Station three they are analyzing a poem (only station where you need to provide something– a poem depending on what type of poetry or grade level you are working with). Lastly, station four is decoding figurative language used in poetry. Estimate about 15 minutes for each station!
