If you're like me, you're wondering how to make English class more hands-on. Roll of Dice Poetry lets you do just that. What could be more fun than rolling the dice to determine how many lines of poetry will be in your poem, and rolling the dice again to find out how many words will be in each line?
Here's an example:
Roll the dice= 12, that means your poem will have 12 lines.
Roll the dice again=3, that means your first line of your poem will have 3 words.
Roll the dice again=7, that means your second line of your poem will have 7 words.
This continues until your poem is complete.
After, the student can add colorful images to complement the poem.
FUN, FUN, FUN!!
You will need to furnish regular dice, or why not try a 20-sided dice?
You will receive:
A template which has the instructions and a space for students to write their poem and add drawings.
You will also receive photos of several poems my students have created.
*Note: I did not supply a rubric for this creative activity. This is in accordance with my educational philosophy as listed in my profile. Sometimes it's good to just let the students create and learn just for education's sake.
