In this poetry unit you will receive a mini-lesson for 6 different types of poetry: acrostic, cinquain, couplet, diamante, haiku, and limerick. The mini-lessons will give an overview of each style of poetry along with examples of each type. After the lesson, students will try their hand at writing the different types of poetry and are supplied with a choice of printables for publishing their writing. There are half pages, full pages, and pages designed to give to a special someone with a to and from line. Allow students to craft their own poetry and then publish them to give to classmates or family members for a real-world extension to the unit. Please see my store as units may be purchased as single mini-lessons for each type of poetry or as a complete unit here. Poets will abound this St. Patrick's Day!
