For use after studying the original "The Night Before Christmas" poem, and how to identify basic rhyming patterns (aa,bb/ab,ab/abcb).
The Night Before
Use the starters at the beginning of each stanza to help write your very own “night before” poem. Yours may be the night before anything you want (a big trip, a competition, another holiday, someone comes to visit, summer break, etc.). The poem should have the same rhyming pattern as Twas the Night Before Christmas (aa, bb), with 3 stanzas of 4 lines each.
