I use these poetry prompts and poetry vocabulary posters as we read the 2015 Newbery Winning book, The Crossover, by Kwamw Alexander. They are a great way to get kids writing poetry using some of the ideas in the book. I require that students complete all of the prompts. When they are done, we cut them out and mount them on construction paper and bind them into a book (just punch holes and thread them with yarn). I use these as an additional writing piece during the unit. We keep them in our reading folders (simply a two-pocket folder) as we read the book.
*These poetry prompts are included in a larger unit I have created for the book.
