Writing Poetry in the Primary Grades
This poetry unit for first and second grade gets students writing both form and free-verse poems as they let their creativity fly!
My students love to write poetry as a break from our traditional writing units. They really buy into the “no rules” aspect of free-verse poetry and when I show them different examples of poetry, they tend to take off and make many different writing pieces. I hope you and your students have as much fun as we do with this one!
