April is poetry month! This packet has everything you need to teach your students to write four different types of poetry--acrostic, cinquain (modern & didactic), rhyming couplet, and definition. The Poetry Notebook contains mini-anchor charts for each type of poetry. The children can glue these in their writer's notebooks as a reminder of what format is for that poem, and then on the pages following it they can compose their own poetry. The corresponding Smartboard Notebook contains the mini-anchor charts as well as slides to help get your students started on their own poems. *This is a zip file so please be certain you know how to "unzip" the files before you purchase.
