Teach your students to write poetry easily with these poetry frames and graphic organizers.
Included in this packet is the following:
Poetry Definition sheets For Terquains, Alliteration, Definition and
Autobiographical or biographical character poems with an example of each type of poetry
Frame to guide students through writing each poem
Frames for draft and final copy
A cover if you would like to make a Poetry Booklet using these frames and lessons.
These are Ready to print and go.
Ideas for use: Teach each type of poetry and then have students choose which type they would like to write.
Put the pages in a booklet with extra blank sheets for each genre and then have students learn about each type and write a poem for each one.
As students learn more science and social studies topics integrate some poetry by writing poems about some of the topics that have studied and choose a type of poem to represent their learning….try math skills as well!
Put the ideas in a writing center and let the students write on choice topics.
The sky is the limit. These are tried and true. I have even used these frames with advanced first graders with much success taking the lessons at a slower pace than with higher grades.
If you download my Poem Freebie which has frames for Cinquain, Haiku and Diamante or Diamond poem you will have frames for 7 different types of poetry.
ENJOY! Thank you for downloading, browsing, following and rating this packet! I hope this brings a little sunshine your way!

Welcome!

These sensational ideas and lessons will motivate your students and transcend them into the brilliant land of learning where they will discover ways to become life long learners in a melodious classroom environment that fosters and values teaching and learning.A place where each child is treasured for his uniqueness and will become an active member of your classroom.
I learned a LOOOOOng time ago that a little sweetness goes a long way so I have tried to look at the positive side of life as a retired teacher of 30+ years, a wife, mom and Mimi of three. Who doesn’t want to visit their Mimi and experience a reality “Candyland” game with all kinds of forbidden pleasures like lollipops, Hershey hugs and kisses, cupcakes, brownies and all those sugary treats, They can visit and experience the sweetness of Mimi’s and then go back home on a sugary high!
My teaching style was and still is to keep all lessons dazzling, fun, hands on and whatever each child needs to learn and grow! I LOVE to differentiate instruction as much as I can! Let’s face it, each year you get a classroom full of kiddos as different as a box of chocolates...Each piece might look pretty much the same on the outside, but when you take a bite, you can see and taste the difference...all sugary and sweet, but different in many ways!
I hope you enjoy using all these lessons and ideas as much as I did during my teaching career. Have fun and remember to enjoy each day because it is definitely a SWEET TREAT!!
