Poetry Task Cards is a set of 30 cards about types of poems and poetry terms. Students identify specific types of poems, write their own original poems, and work with poetry terms.
For each type of poem, there are two cards. One asks the student to find an example of that type of poem and then to describe how that type of poem is formed. The second card about each type of poem gives directions and asks students to write a poem of their own.
The poetry terms include the basics of figurative language, imagery, and poetry format with activities that include matching and other types of questions.
Studying and writing poems helps students improve their reading and vocabulary skills as well as their skills at writing. Poetry skills such as using figurative language and imagery or writing within a limited format carry over to other types of reading materials and other forms of writing as well.
These cards can be used by kids at a variety of skill levels.
