Kids love poetry!
In this easy poetry center, students take interesting starter words on small cards and turn them into poetry. It's like rearranging refrigerator magnets.
It's a great way to get kids from grades 1 through 6 writing and publishing poetry very quickly…even those who have trouble coming up with unique topics for poems.
