I have used these poetry frames to teach adjectives and verbs. The purpose is to help children expand and develop their vocabulary. With little ones I have them brainstorm as a whole class. Then, I let the children choose the words they want and insert them into the frame. For older students I have them use a thesaurus to find interesting words. This is a fun activity that works well as a partner or cooperative learning experience. Afterwards, it makes a cute bulletin board. A poem could look like:
I like tigers.
I like ...etc.
