First, I created their yellow (or any color of your choice) "official" poetry book so they could see what their final product would look like. In the unit, there are 7 different types of poems. Each has a poster, examples, a class practice page, a student practice page, and a publishing page so that you can pick and choose based on your students' needs!
For your own copy, click on the picture below to go to TpT! This can be used for a before or after school club or for your regular writing curriculum. It works either way!
Also, I needed to teach alliteration since it is one of our standards, so I had one of subs create this A-mazng Tree in my room to display "All of our awesome alliteration" on the Poe-Tree! We'll add some butterflies around it later during our nonfiction writing unit!
