I love teaching poetry with my students. It is such a fun way to get students thinking creatively! Every month I pick one type of poetry to teach my children. Then, I model a poem and have the students write their own. I went to my local IU and used their large Die Cut machines to make seasonal cut outs. The students use these cutouts to write their poem. Not only are the students learning, but they help me decorate my room! :)
Here is the form I am using to show the students Cinquain poetry.
