Recommend that students use a binder with a clear pocket. This sheet can be brightly colored and used as the cover. The poetry portfolio is a 3 ring binder that includes lessons on figurative language as well as forms of poetry and student work.
As a concept is taught, students add it to the I SHAMPOO checklist. Idiom, Simile, Hyperbole, Alliteration, Metaphor, Personification, Oxymoron, Onomatopoeia. I have students put this sheet on the back cover of the binder.
