In this product there is a poetry mini-lesson, a quiz with answer key, and a poetry writing project with grading rubric.
The mini-lesson covers five formats of poetry:
Rhyming (Couplet, Triplet, Quatrain)
Each format of poetry is defined, shown through examples, and has an opportunity to practice. When I do this with my class, we spend 2-3 weeks in all, spending a few days on each format. I present a new type of poetry one day and spend the next 2-3 days practicing that form during our Daily 5 Routine: Work on Writing.
The quiz is a simple fill in the blank quiz asking students to identify types of poetry based on definition and examples.
The project asks students to compose two poems.
This product does NOT teach students how to interrupt poetry…this is a tool for teaching formats of poetry and how to WRITE those five types of poems.
