Help your students develop a love for poetry with this fun poetry project and poet craft.
First, teach the different types of poems using the "Types of Poetry" booklet and slides.
Next, have students create their own poems using the "Collection of Original Poetry" student poetry booklets. Each booklet has the necessary number of lines for each type of poem.
Finally, students create a poet craft using their own faces. This craft gets attached to students' poetry booklets for a fun hallway display.
This is a great project for back to school, National Poetry Month, to accompany a poetry unit, or even for the last week of school.
Host a poetry slam as a culminating poetry project. Invite parents or another class to watch students perform their favorite poems. Bring in a stool, spotlight, berets, and sunglasses, and watch students' poems come to life!
