This document provides a Poetry Journal that is used to teach students how to write multiple poems using their five senses.
Print a journal for each learner (use the girl or boy covers if desired). Follow the instruction for each poem. Some poems will be completed together as a class and others are to be completed independently with teacher guidance as needed. All the poems are introducing students to poetry and focus on using their five senses. Compile all of the poems and have learners share their favorite.
Students make a squiggle above the poem and write a poem about their squiggle. What does it look like? What is happening in your squiggle?
Pick an animal or object and write only action words on the lines to tell you what it is doing.
Complete one line each day for the senses poems. Students pick a topic (ex. a baseball game, a carnival, the beach, etc.).
Read the poem below aloud. Then as a class pick an animal to make a new sound for. Make a class poem and then have each student make their own.
Bring a stuffed animal to school and complete the poem together as a class.
The students can then complete the Me poem on their own.
Make a list of smells together as a class (ex. stinky, sweet, etc.), pick a smell and complete the poem together.
Have learners taste chips and complete the chips acronym together as a class using words to describe the chips. Then have the students pick their own food and make their own acronym.
Together as a class use the lines to write what it would feel like to ride on the back of a snake.
They think about how that object feels and completes the poem.
Students create their own original poem.
