Language Arts - "Poetry Unit: How to Write Eight Types of Poems"

By Christina L
Grades 2-5

This poetry unit contains instructions, templates, worksheets and topic ideas for creating 8 types of poems.
The poems covered include:
  • Syllable Cinquain
  • Tanka
  • Haiku
  • Diamante
  • Parts of Speech Poem
  • Name Acrostic
  • Fives Senses Poem
  • Silly Rhyme
Suggested Uses:
  • Laminate the instructions/example of each poem to place in a poetry literacy center. Include copies of templates for students to create final copies. They can use the checklist to mark which poems they have done.
  • Or, use the poems individually throughout the year. For example, pick one out to use for a holiday, a new season or even recent field trip. (The Five Senses Poem would be great to recall a field trip.)
Thanks for Looking!
