Use this resource to create adorable poem snowflakes! Students will write both a haiku and cinquain poem about snowflakes/winter/the holidays. Students will publish their poems and glue onto either side of the snowflake. Decorate the snowflake with glitter, punch a hole in the top, and hang around the room!
I love these FREE poetry templates! So easy to teach haiku, cinquain, and diamante. These were perfect for my writing center, and easy to make a quick bulletin board. The perfect addition to any poetry or writer's workshop.
Good explanation of Haikus for my older kids. In April, the whole front of my circulation desk becomes a poetry wall. I buy cheap decorative post-its from target and the kids are allowed to write a poem on them and stick it to the wall. At the end of the month we host a poetry night and students can read one of those poems!
Poetry Skills - Although this might be a little "young" for our age group, I think it gives an excellent description of different types of poems (which is something I've had to re-learn recently) and could still be used in 7th grade.
