Poetry for Kids: write a name poem.
I did this poetry unit when I taught grade 5. It takes about 10 days and there are examples of each of the poems (acrostic, autobiography, cut-up poem, shape poem, sense poem, haiku, cinquain, aliteration). You can start using it right away. Can be adapted to any grade. $
Do you have students who say they don't like to write poems? They'll join in the fun as they write poems with friends in small groups using my 27 poetry task cards. All cards have definitions and examples of the poems. There are traditional poems as well as humorous and topics kids relate to. Laminate the cards for future use. priced item.
