Each poetry lesson provides samples of the poetry form. Step-by-step lessons on three levels of difficulty are provided:
Level 1-students are guided through all the steps to write a poem
Lever 2-students are guided through the first few steps and then complete the poem independently
Level 3-students write independently, following the guides on a "How to" chart and a reproducible step-by-step form.
This three-level approach gives teachers the versatility to meet any student's needs. Subjects for poems include The Sun, Birds, Rain, A Clown, Bubbles, Kittens, Motorcycle, Cowboy, Space Alien, and many more to which students will readily relate.
Ideas provided for displaying and sharing student poetry include display boards, charts and banners, a newsletter, a program for a poetry reading, and a portfolio - each with complete instructions and, where needed, reproducible templates.
Each poetry form is illustrated with engaging line art. All 96 pages perforated for easy removal. $10.95 each.
