Here is a look at five of my favorite teaching lessons and activities for teaching poetry!
Sticky Note Poetry Analysis
This sticky note poetry analysis teaching resource includes everything you need to teach your next poetry unit. This poetry teaching unit includes an instructional teaching presentation for direct instruction, suggested poems to teach, and plenty of hands-on and engaging poetry analysis organizers.
Poetry Analysis Task Cards
Incorporate these poetry analysis task cards in your next poetry teaching unit. These task cards can be used with any poem of your choosing, and there are 40 unique task cards. These poetry task cards also make the perfect addition to a poetry station activity in the classroom.
Poetry Analysis Mini Flip Book
Your students will love creating this poetry analysis mini flip book. As your students make their way through the pages of this poetry mini flip book, they will analyze multiple aspects of a poem to truly understand its meaning.
Blank Verse Poetry Project
This FREE blank verse poetry project is so much fun! With this free activity, students will select any topic of their choosing and write 4-6 lines of blank verse about the topic. It’s a great poetry writing activity that your students will enjoy!
Poetry Analysis Collaborative Poster
One of the most fun classroom experiences my students have had when studying poetry was when I assigned this collaborative poetry analysis project. Students will benefit from working with their peers as they collectively discuss a poem and work to analyze it together. As a bonus, students can then present their poster projects to the class!
