PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This poetry project is a culminating writing activity that my honors and gifted students do after we've finished our poetry unit. After learning about sound devices and reading and analyzing several different types of poems, they spend two days on computers composing their own pieces. Then they choose one to present to the class. This project includes directions for six types of poems, so students can choose a variety of small, medium, and large poems to write (for a total of four).
Students are often so intimidated by poetry - I love to see them getting comfortable and letting their creativity out. This creative writing activity practices important parts of the writing process (generating ideas, organizing, revising, and proofreading) as well as reviewing several 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
meter
stanza
quatrain
limerick
haiku
concrete poem
ballad
extended metaphor
I always love grading these - my kids write such funny, creative, and thoughtful pieces!
