Product Description
Your students will love this presidential rhyming/couplet activity designed for Presidents' Day. Even students who find poetry hard to write find it much easier with this activity!

Students brainstorm rhyming words first to use in their couplets. They then write couplets using the rhyming words on a rough draft page. Finally, students write their good copies on one of the templates provided (which can also be colored).

This packet includes:
1. Directions for using the activities in your classroom
2. Rhyming brainstorming activity sheets (both color and black/white)
3. Sample brainstorming pages with rhyming words
4. Presidential couplet writing sheet
5. Presidential couplet sample page
6. Four writing templates for good copies of couplets

Please see the preview and thumbnails to view some sample pages.
