Poetry Writing Unit

Enjoying our Poetry Month!

I love when first graders write poetry!  We have been doing a unit on Free Verse Poetry.  There is not a lot of emphasis on structure or perfect sentences so they have the freedom to get creative while trying out some different techniques!  When I do this unit, I notice even the struggling students really excelling because of its free-form style.   They have been writing poems about many different things… summer, cousins, cats… and even bacon!  


We have spent a few weeks on this "Free Verse" poetry unit.  Take a look at the photos below to get an idea of how it went!  We still have a few more mini-lessons to go.  



This is what I follow.  It is part of my Poetry Writing Unit that you can find here on TPT.







 Click on the preview picture below to purchase my Poetry Unit.  It gives you day-to-day mini-lessons that include suggested dialogue and read alouds.  The unit is filled with student examples, anchor charts, book recommendations,activities, parent letters, self-reflection sheets, talking points and so much more!



I'll give out this unit to the first 5 people who comment for free!  Please leave a comment below with your email address and I'll send it out to you.

Thanks for stopping by!
