POETRY PACKAGE - This comprehensive poetry package includes some of my BEST SELLING poetry items on TpT! Includes Bonus Figurative Language Worksheet as well as detailed poetry writing rubric! Everything you need for all of the poetry projects (and 1 bonus worksheet!) is included in this poetry package. All of the activities included in this pack can be differentiated for different ages and abilities - I have successfully used these activities from 5th - 10th grade!

Download the preview for full details. This package would cost over $12 if all the poetry assignments were purchased individually!

"Pet Peeve Poem - Practice Writing With Similes"
Students read a poem rich in similes and then write their own poem in a similar style. Great practice for identifying similes! Students love the opportunity to use similes to write a poem about their pet peeves!

"My Life in 30 Words" Poetry Activity
Have students write a 30 word poem about themselves. Includes assignment sheet, brainstorming worksheet, templates and examples. Great for Back to School!

"From Prose to Poetry"
Using short newspaper articles as a prompt, students write a poem using the images and ideas in the articles. Unique way to show students the difference between prose and poetry and have them work with both genres.

"Imagery Poem"
Using a short poem with imagery as an example, students write their own poem. Includes assignment sheet, brainstorming sheet and more!

"Hero Music" - Music Lyrics as Poetry
Using music lyrics as an example of poetry, students pick songs that best exemplify the idea of a hero. My students love this activity because of the music aspect!

"Poetry Poster / Mind Map"
A fun way to review or practice poetry terms / figurative language! Students create a themed poster and write their own examples of figurative language. Simile, metaphor, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, rhyme, alliteration & personification.

"Laughing With Limericks"
Templates and examples of a limerick - a fun poetry activity! Lots of fun for St. Patrick's Day

Figurative Language Reference Sheet
A quick one page review sheet / reference sheet for figurative language. I like my students to keep this page handy in their notebooks for quick review.
