Poetry Common Core Aligned - Let's Write some Poetry
In this unit you will find an introduction to a wide variety of different types of poetry. Each lesson contains an example of the type of poem being discussed, and several activities that your students can work on to learn more about poetry and how to create some poems of their own. When they’re done, you can create little booklets of the poems your kids have made using the cover page provided at the back of the book.
I homeschooled my own children for seven years which was one of the most rewarding things I have done. I also taught at both the elementary and high school levels. I also taught English as a Second Language for several years at schools in France, Hungary, and Slovakia.
I like to engage students and find creative ways for students to have fun while they are learning. I definitely encourage students to use their creativity and dare to be wrong and try new things in their pursuit of knowledge.
