Dr. Seuss was famous for his rhymes, so his poetry inspire your learners to write their own. This Poetry Writing Pack by Proud to be Primary includes writing activities to teach 1st to 4th graders how to write different types of poetry. The types of poems included are shape, five senses, limerick, acrostic, alphabet, color, cinquain, diamante, free verse, haiku, list, rhyming couplets, and autobiographical poems. In this pack you receive a poetry banner, poetry notebook, posters, vocabulary cards, creation/brainstorming pages, practice pages, and templates. Everything you need to get started!
Let poetry become a weekly activity for your learner(s). In Erin Waters’ March Interactive Poetry Notebook, students reinforce sight words, reading, rhyming, and word families by using a poem each week.
Dr. Seuss would probably encourage you to incorporate poetry in your lessons for an entire month! Ms. Fultz has an amazing month-long poetry pack that includes 17 mini lessons. She usually uses these lessons for National Poetry Month in April.
