Product Description
Poetry Stretches are great for poetry month or all year long! Teach your students essential skills for writing poetry. We all know how important it is to get your muscles warmed up by stretching before running or working out. Well, it is important to stretch your brain and writing muscles before writing poetry, too!

Poetry stretches encourage students to think creatively, write lists, come up with rhyming words, and more. They are great warm ups and pre writing activities!

This is a collection of 52 poetry stretches that help students practice essential poetry-writing and language skills. You will also find 9 vocabulary cards with definitions and examples for the following terms: alliteration, onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, imagery, synonyms, antonyms. Examples of a word web and acrostic poem are also included. Display these on a bulletin board, or keep them handy for students to reference as they work on the stretches.

Suggestions for Use
Use these task cards as part of a writing center or station in your classroom. Have each student keep a journal or folder where they respond to the stretches. You may also choose to use them as a whole group quick write assignment.
