After reading various selections of poetry with my class, I like to challenge them to create their own written work. Sheets include poem prompts that ask your students to include descriptive language, alliteration and onomatopoeia, and idioms. Rubrics are included for each assignment.
Students are asked to select their own form of poetry (Cinquain, Quatrain, Haiku, etc.) to allow them as much creativity as possible whist completing the assignment.
