This poetry unit for first and second grade gets students writing both form and free-verse poems as they let their creativity fly!

My students love to write poetry as a break from our traditional writing units. They really buy into the "no rules" aspect of free-verse poetry and when I show them different examples of poetry, they tend to take off and make many different writing pieces. I hope you and your students have as much fun as we do with this one!

In this unit:

  • Teacher Examples for each type of poem
  • Free verse & Form poems with graphic organizers to plan
  • Sensory poems: 8 different poetry prompts with planning pages, blank templates.
  • Feelings poems: 9 different poetry prompts with planning pages.
  • Acrostic poems
  • Cinquain poems
  • Shape poems
  • Color poems
  • Haiku poems
  • Poetry topic cards
  • Poetry book covers
