Spring Poetry Scrapbook
This poetry scrapbook is the perfect way to get your class exploring the outdoors while letting their creative juices flow in the form of poetry. They each get their own personal scrapbook where they are required to think about what language they can use to describe specific things before putting their thoughts into a poem. This scrapbook gives the children the opportunity to write acrostic, quatrain, and couplet poems along with another, which they can choose.
I have used this pack with great success in spring and summer where we would spend Friday afternoons going out to write poetry, however I am excited to have a go at it in winter too! It is very therapeutic for both the children and the teacher.
