Spring Poetry Unit - 12 different types of poems, with posters, definitions, how-to directions, examples, and templates #poetry

April is National Poetry Month! Check out the poetry teaching resources in Laura Candler's online file cabinet - mostly free!

A Classroom Poetry Peek into how one teacher and her class celebrate poetry with a Poet-Tree along with a poem about a "Worm's Wish." .

"To kick off our unit, I partnered kids up and gave them each a poetry book and a sticky note. They had to come up with at least 3 things they noticed about poetry on the sticky note. Of course every group noticed that poetry can rhyme! But I got a lot of additional great answers which were later compiled into the chart" ~My Life as a 3rd Grade Teacher

I am poem by students...combined with art.

Color Poems

Shel Silverstein Animated Poems On Youtube!

My Years, in Tree Rings - would be great as a poem in our art/poetry books

Types of poetry

Adverbs anchor chart ~ I have to make one of these!

parts of speech sort

Poetry can be fun, but also difficult to understand. Check out this poetry center for intermediate grades. Great to use in writing or reading class.

Dr. Seuss Poem...perfect for my month of March Suess-tastic month programing at my library =)

The First Grade Parade: Plant Freebies, Cinquain Poetry, & Dirty Word Work

This website has an unending list of ready made items for centers. Each one is sorted for a specific center. Word work, poetry, writing, grammar.....Many ideas can be adapted to older grades, primarily for third.

inviting kids into poetry with a "Poetry Picnic" to explore different types and styles of poetry in rotations

Poetry centers. My kids are enjoying using these. I like it because the kids read authentic text while searching for these elements.

Gonna use next year for my poetry unit. Well organized and has all the poems that I need to cover. After completing, the kids can take home this 20 page poetry booklet!

Poetry response anchor chart -- SO much potential here!! Could laminate it (on large, lined paper?) to pull out during whole class/small group time. Could make a 8x11 version for kids to follow along with during whole class/small group time or for individual time! Awesome!

onomatopoeia, repetition, white space, sensory words for early poetry understanding and writing

I like this class promise. Read everyday at the end of announcements to review expectations and set the tone.

I found this on the internet somewhere I don't know who to give credit to. I retyped the version and put up to date pictures on it. This is reall...

rainbow suite door decs (How I will use this idea: traditional arc rainbow...ending at a pot of gold. The gold will be a 'picture' of and remind/reinforce to the kids that He is the treasure we should search for and he is the treasure who will make your life better-make you your best!)

This poem starter is a great way to wrap up learning as well as to write about oneself. I've used it to wrap up Native Americans. Kids take the point of view of a culture region. For example. "I am a person of the Great Plains"

105 page Poetry and Figurative Language Unit with 40 lessons for the reading and writing workshops all tied to grade 3 CCSS!! Also included are descriptions of all 40 lessons and class chart examples. There are units available for grades 3, 4, and 5, and 6!!
