This is a really fun/ creative way to get even the most reluctant poet to willingly create fabulous poetry! Students use word cards to create lines of poetry (one line per hand) which then become five lines of poetry. It is also a great way to get in a quick review of articles, prepositions and helping verbs since these are the only words they may add. The game and words for word cards are included. This has been one of my most successful lessons to date!
