If you're looking for some inspiration, this Poetry Jam Interactive Notebook-Flip Book for grades 6-8 will be your BFF. Not only will your kids love it, but you will too.

Don’t you just love the smell of spring in the air? When I think of spring, I think of poetry. What better way is there to teach this genre then to take a group of kids outside, have them lie under a tree and write a poem. Well, I did this with my 6th graders and I was amazed at the poetry they wrote. This resource will inspire your students, just as it did mine! 

Would you like your students to become more organized and better able to synthesize their thoughts? This resource utilizes foldables that can be added to interactive notebooks which can be displayed around the room.

Are you looking to utilize multiple learning styles since you have such a diverse class. This resource will do the trick. It will not only accommodate your visual learners, but it will work with your linguistic, and kinesthetic learners as well.

As a culmination to this activity, your kids have the opportunity to publish their favorite poem/poems in a book entitled Celebration of Young Poets- Creative Communication, Inc. There’s more information about this in the teacher’s lesson plans. What better way to help them to feel good about themselves and their accomplishments than to see their work in print.

As Educators, we know that poetry writing can be tedious, time consuming and a great deal of effort for both you and the kids. Buuut, this resource will help make it more enjoyable and fun..

I’ll never forget one of my students, a typical boy, he was a scooch, fooled around, tried to take the easiest way out, and did everything he could to get out of work. Buuut he had a great sense of humor and kept me laughing throughout the year. Poetry truly clicked with him, it blew my mind when I read his Free Verse Poem., it was amaaazing. The best poem in the class. He blew himself away too, lol! I was so proud of him for what he had accomplished. Annnd isn’t that what it’s all about?
