I love teaching poetry! I have found that the more excited I am about it, my students are too! I created this unit to engage my students in all of the amazing different types of poetry. My students had SO much fun creating their poetry pieces and then presenting them to their parents!
The types of poetry included in this product are animal alliteration, couplet, limerick, haiku, acrostic, cinquain, diamante, I Wish, I Am and color poem.
*A 20 page slide show defining each type of poetry, as well as an example for each. I show the slide for whatever type of poetry we are focusing on that day.
*Templates: Ten types of poetry are featured with this product. There is a poetry template for each one. Also included are 3 additional poetry templates and crafts for a specific topic.
*Book suggestion list
*Poetry Cafe: Following our unit of study, families are invited to attend our Poetry Cafe in the classroom. Students have the opportunity to read their poems aloud to their family members. An invitation and RSVP are included.
*Meet the Authors Board: To have on display during the Poetry Cafe.
April is National Poetry Month and this will certainly help get you on your way!
