I slept for...oh about 50 hours yesterday (I was still at home, sick.) ...and when I finally got up, I decided to create a poetry unit for my students for next year. My student teacher just completed a poetry unit with my students and she did a fab job at it! The one thing we noticed as she was going through it is that it was hard to find a lot of "kid-friendly" poetry templates out there. So I decided to create my own to use for next year and beyond! :) I hope you enjoy these!
Included in this Poetry Party! pack is a 35 page poetry unit. It covers:
Diamante Synonym Poems
Diamante Antonym Poems
Free Verse Poetry
Tongue Twister Poems
Each type of poem comes with an adorable poster, a planning page for the students to brainstorm and create their original poem, and a final copy page. The unit also comes with a bonus activity practice page for Haiku Poems and Shape Poems. It has a "My Poetry" book cover so your students can staple all of their final copy pages into their own poetry book at the end of the unit. After you are done, have a "Poetry Party" to celebrate all of their hard work! :)
As with all of my new units, I'll give this Poetry Party! pack away for FREE to the first five people who leave a comment. :) Leave your e-mail address so that I can send it to you.
