PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a culminating activity I use with my gifted students after we've finished our poetry unit. We spend two days on computers composing, and then they choose one to present to the class. Students are often so intimidated by poetry - I love to see them getting comfortable and letting their creativity out. This activity practices important parts of the writing process (generating ideas, organizing, revising, and proofreading) as well as reviewing poetry types and sound devices.
Students have the choice to write a haiku, quatrain, limerick, concrete poem, ballad, and/or extended metaphor free verse.
Directions for each type of poem are included on the activity, but students will want to be somewhat familiar with the following poetry terms:
rhyme
alliteration
meter
stanza
quatrain
limerick
haiku
ballad
extended metaphor
I always love grading these - my kids write such funny, creative, and thoughtful pieces!
