Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!

With new state standards, we have been digging way deeper into poetry than we ever have in 4th grade! We are not only writing poems, but studying many different forms and their parts (stanza, line break, rhythm, patterns, etc). We study the reason a poem is written and classify it by its characteristics. 


My co-teacher came across a great idea to make poetry books. We modified for our needs and were very pleased with the results! Students ended up writing around 25 poems along with a special keepsake from 4th grade! Here are a few snapshots:

these are gorgeous! It must be difficult to adjust to the new standards, but at least the books are pretty
