Poetry Writing

Purpose: Poetry gets students thinking about word play, form and function of words, and sound in order to better understand how the words come together to create vivid and powerful pictures.

Activities: creative poems about his favorite color, an acrostic poem - a poem using a reoccurring first letter, syllable, or line – using vocabulary for an upcoming test (like a mnemonic device), Haikus using refrigerator word magnets, or even hold a poetry slam.
