Categories: , Tags: , ,

Our Poetry lesson plan for grades 1-3 engages the imagination of young students while developing reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. During this lesson, students are asked to create lists of rhyming words they could use to create short poems with. Students are also asked to create a word picture by choosing a topic from the topic list and completing five sensory brainstorming boxes, then writing a short poem that helps their readers see the place or event they’re describing.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to read various forms of poetry and identify rhyme and structural elements of poems, identify descriptive and figurative language in poems that create word pictures for readers, create rhyming poems, acrostic poems, and bio poems, and use descriptive language to compose a poem that creates a word picture.
