This terrific tool makes learning about poetry concrete and fun—and encourages children to experiment writing in this genre, develop critical thinking, and use their imaginations. Excellent for whole class instruction, independent reading, or writing workshop.
Read the poem aloud to your students and discuss as a class. Then print and distribute the poem along with the graphic organizer, which children can use to organize their thoughts on the reading. Some students can dictate their thoughts or draw a picture of them.
