I'm sharing about a Poetry Writing Unit that I created. It would be best fit for grades 2nd -5th. I created this product for two reasons. One, it seems like every time I go to a literacy conference, they stress the importance of poetry and how it is often left out of standards and district provided resources. Some teachers feel like they struggle with poetry, and it doesn't get taught as much as it should. I also have searched on TPT and had a hard time finding something that I thought reached a deep enough level and a range of poetry skills.
The resource that I created helps introduce poetry techniques and different types of poems. It would make a great binder or packet to get students started with quality poetry. They could use the pages for practice and as a model as they continue adding to their collection.
Techniques included - Using Poet's Eyes, Comparisons, Creating Mood, Using Figurative Language, Using Precise Language, small moment/big feeling, repetition, and using line breaks.
Types of Poems- Conversation Poem, "I am" Poem, Acrostic Poem, Shape Poem, List Poem, Couplet Poem, and a Sensory Poem.
Also included are figurative language posters, a precise language game, ideas for a Poetry Celebration, poetry cafe posters, and poetry writing paper.
