Poetry Unit: How to Write 8 Types of Poems + Poetry Task Cards
This Poetry Unit includes all you need to teach different types of poems. It comes with instructions, templates, and topic ideas for writing 8 types of poems plus 7 poetry task cards for your centers/stations or early finishers.
There are 2 covers included: one for an individual poetry book and one for a class poetry book. Have students choose their best/favorite poem and put a class poetry book together to keep on display all year long.
The poems included:
• Syllable Cinquain
• Parts of Speech Poem
• Name Acrostic
• Fives Senses Poem
• Silly Rhyme
• Laminate the instructions/example of each poem to place in a poetry literacy center. Include copies of templates for students to create final copies. They can use the checklist to mark which poems they have done.
• Or, use the poems individually throughout the year. For example, pick one out to use for a holiday, a new season or even recent field trip. (The Five Senses Poem would be great to recall a field trip.)
