Spring, poetry, and flowers: a perfect combination! Try this poetry craftivity as a break from testing, as part of April’s celebration of poetry, or as a special tribute for Mother’s Day! Finished Poetry Flowers also make a spectacular bulletin board display!
Four poetry forms (Diamonte, Word Cinquain, Syllable Cinquain, and Haiku) are included on posters, along with a sample poem written in each form. These forms lend themselves so well to writing about Spring, Spring activities, and nature. Try hanging these posters in your writing center for a touch of springtime motivation!
The craftivity part can be as simple as: print, write, cut, color, and cut. The flower templates can also be printed on cardstock, flipped, and used as tracers for more involved painting and decorating. Try a tissue paper collage, spatter painting, or watercolors for a special touch!
Center circles are also provided both with and without lines. Poems can be written on them and then glued to flower templates.
