I need to give a HUGE *THANK YOU* to Gladys at Teaching in High Heels for giving me a big shout out on her Teacher Feature day! I am feeling so honored and grateful – her blog is famous to me in bloggy-world and I just think of her as a definite “teacher-blogger celebrity!” 🙂 She is just the sweetest person and you really need to head over to her blog and say hello. And, I get to be a guest blogger for her on Friday!! How cool is that?! I’m very excited but also completely nervous and scared to guest write for such a huge blog – Can I do it?! Do you think I can?!
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! 🙂
