3rd grade National Poetry Month poetry journal for kids

I admit, I have never been one to go all out for National Poetry Month in April. I enjoy reading poems with my class and poetry books definitely get their rotation in my monthly book display, but poetry projects or multi-day lessons never seem to fit in. First of all, April is peak testing season

I like to spend a couple weeks each year teaching my students about poetry. We do a number of fun activities in addition to reading and writing different poems. We have a poetry battle, rank poetry, make a poetry journal, and much more! Here is a look into my poetry unit.... To kick off my poetry unit I have my students each complete this KWL Chart about Poetry. We then discuss what poetry is, what a poet's purpose is, what poems can have, etc. I use and display these posters during my unit…

Poetry is, let's be honest, not easy to teach at times. I feel it's the hardest genre to teach to my second graders. But it doesn't have to be something you dread to teach.

Hello Everyone!! Happy April and Happy Poetry Month!! Poetry is one of the parts of our writing curriculum that I look forward to so much! We read, discuss, analyze, and even memorize poetry every week...poems that help to bring our curriculum to life. Kids love poetry. The tongue twisting words, the alliteration, the onomatopoeia, the fun language, the rhyme, the rhythm, and so much more. Teaching a social studies or science concept using fun poetry is the best! The kids keep all their…
