: Are you working on poetry in your classroom? If so, your students will enjoy this fun 'types of poetry' word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.
In this poetry puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words diagonally and backwards.
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to use in writing. Perfect for a sub, too. Possibly have your students pick a few types of poetry from the list and give an example. Maybe read some poetry throughout the week and have students refer to the crossword in order to determine the type of poetry you are reading. Even have it as a literacy center where students can define the types in their journal and then complete the word search if they have extra time. Use this theme word search however you would like in your classroom.
