Writing Poems With Children

A summary of several poetry formats which may be used to write poems with children in grades K-3. These poems, inspired by books about winter, use several of the formats described (samples gathered from various websites).

Poems We Are Learning

Poems are memorized by students either individually or as a shared activity -- each group learns specific lines. Poetry is recited, recorded, reconstructed from poem line strips, and when appropriate combined with movement. Students will write their own poems in the library publishing center.
