Instructional Ideas

  • Encourage language arts learners to use specific part of speech in each section
  • Host a gallery walk for class members to view their peers' published and decorated poems
  • Have your class practice document formatting by creating a final draft of their poem in the computer lab
  • Allow advanced writers to tweak the format if they'd like
Classroom Considerations

  • Parts of the packet are in color, but learners should be able to understand it when printed in black and white
Pros

  • Scaffolds the assignment from brainstorm to final copy
  • A great icebreaker activity
Cons

  • Some awkward wording in the loving line that can't be changed
