      Where I’m From - Teachers can use this idea to teach poetry. This “Where I’m From” worksheet will help students learn about creating a poem about their life and who they are. Students will learn about imagery by describing themselves and thinking about their life. Poems can be stories and students will learn that concept when working on this worksheet.
