Introducing Poetry Power!
I have just finished adding a new item to my store. It's an excellent resource for you upper elementary teachers to use when teaching poetry. It includes a handy glossary of poetry terms with an aligning blank template. Just take any poem and have your young poets interpret it based upon the template. This tool can be used whole class, for homework, as an assessment or in a literacy center. It can be used over and over again. Just keep a tub of laminated poems and blank templates and you are ready to go for September. As a bonus, you will also get seven fun and interactive ways to share poetry to promote both fluency and an appreciation of the spoken word. Click here to spice up your poetry unit this coming year!
