Brrrrr it is getting cold outside and winter break is just around the corner. What can you do to keep your students engaged and learning while keeping activities short, engaging and exciting? Winter Poetry!
This Winter Poetry packet teaches students different forms of poetry, giving them examples and having them create their own as well. This packet was use with my students before winter break as a gift of words that they could take home and share with their families, friends and neighbors during their holiday break. The poems are themed all around winter and the wonderful wintery things we love; snowflakes, sledding, hot cocoa, snowmen, snowball fights, frost, winter clothes/gear, hockey, etc.
Each student finds a way to connect with the winter season and the poems created from their imagination are just incredible. Enjoy this with your whole class or use it as an extension for your high achieving students who may finish early. Each poem type is defined on the following pages along with multiple example poems.
