This is a student notebook to explore different aspects of poetry, including word choice, visualization, rhyme, patterns/repetition, heart of the poem, alliteration, and onomatopoeia.
When you copy the journal, you will notice that there are pages that say “glue poem here”. Poems are not included although there is a page of resources included. I usually make all of the notebooks in advance and then have my students glue the poems in. This way, they can look at and highlight the poems while looking at and working on the notebook page.
The notebook includes:
2 Cover Choices (color and black & white)
1 "How to Read a Poem" Page
9 Student Response Pages
Blank Pages for Poems
