There is a poet in us all! Unfortunately, most kids don't believe this. Poetry is kind of a bad word which elicits groans of disapproval. However, every time I finish this 5-poem unit with my classes, they are asking for more. I hope you find the same with your kids!
This packet includes:
*how-to instructions for writing a cinquain, diamante, color, autobiographical, and acrostic poem
*examples of each kind of poem
*outlines on which students can write their own poems
The whole packet is aligned to parts of the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade cores for language. You will find yourself discussing parts of speech, word choice, similes and metaphors, and much more as your kids complete these five poems.
