April is National Poetry Month.  I've been so busy with other things that I almost missed it! I did start my poetry unit on Monday.  We talked about what poetry is and about some of the many different kinds of poetry.  We read a poem about ice cream and then the kids wrote their own poems.  They turned out so cute!  This is what they look like:

After the ice cream poem, we learned about couplets.  We made lists of rhyming words and then the kids wrote their own couplets.  Today we learned about acrostic poems.  We read a poem about birthday parties and then we wrote an acrostic about birthdays using the letters PRESENTS.  Finally, I gave everyone a piece of notebook paper and had them write an acrostic with their name.  I made an example for them and then they started.
This is how some of theirs turned out.

The kids are really enjoying poetry so far.  More poems and craftivities to come!  This is what it looks like:
This unit includes poems, activities, instructions for students to write their own poems and crafts. Everything you need to teach poetry is included. You can see the unit in my store by clicking HERE!
Stay tuned for more fun with poetry!  Oh, and 29 more school days for me!  How many more days for you?
