April is National Poetry Month. English language arts students will love their poetry journal pages and Poem in Your Pocket pennant. How can I teach poetry? Poetry is a challenge for my students. English teachers prepare poetry lessons to get students enthusiastic about haiku, acrostic, I am poems, and “My Selfie Poems.” This spring, get visual with the poetry organizers and templates for your students to kick-start their creativity!

– in color
– gray scale
– completed example of the fingerprint ,”My Selfie Poem”
– “My Selfie Poem” – includes student directions sheet (cut in half), template to fill in, fingerprint template
– I am Poem organizer and writing paper
– Haiku directions and template
– Acrostic “PEACE” directions and template
– Poem in Your Pocket pennant – 3 versions of the jeans to encourage choice.
– Writing paper to match
– Print PDF version and Digital GOOGLE Drive version
– Teacher Instructions for Writing Activity, Philosophy, Background on Sketchnotes

Great for a teacher who just doesn’t have the time to cover a large poetry unit. Especially in an English Language Arts classroom with struggling students who seem uninterested. This might work!

Sketchnotes can be used for:
Note taking
Auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners
Encourages creativity
Organizing thoughts
Studying and memorization
Visually appealing presentation of information
Allows students to discover their own style
Print and Digital
