Poetry - Falling into Poetry - Poetry for Autumn / Fall
This FALLing into Poetry resource has your students working with poetic devices and different forms of poetry. Each device and type of poetry has a definition and original example. Students will create a poetry booklet full of their own poetry and examples, as well as a Fall leaf poetry craft that makes a beautiful classroom display of learning.
Poetic devices include: alliteration, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification, rhyme, repetition, rhyme scheme, and simile. Poetry forms include: acrostic poem, cinquain, diamante, free verse, haiku, limerick, and quatrain.
Each device and form is on a half sheet of paper. Students will cut the papers in half and staple together to form their booklet.
A success criteria page, as well as a rubric are included in this resource. They are also on half pages so they can be easily included into the booklet, if you wish.
