Writing Poetry with Children has everything you need to help children write poetry.

This valuable resource includes these poetry forms:

  • couplets
  • cinquain
  • haiku
  • limericks
  • shape poems
  • acrostic poems

Each poetry lesson provide samples of the poetry form and step-by-step lessons on three levels of difficulty:

  • Level 1—students are guided through all the steps to write a poem
  • Level 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.

More than 30 reproducible writing forms on which to showcase finished poems are provided. A special section of the book covers lots of interesting ways to display and share student poetry.
