Writing Poetry with Children makes it easy to teach 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
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. 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.
