Poetry Unit 5th garde
 
I am working on a poetry unit with my fifth graders. What type of poems do you require them to write for the unit?

Try these
 
couplet
cinquain
haiku
limerick
acrostic

I also like to start the unit by reading Love That Dog.

Also look at ETTC's Instant Poetry Forms online. There are many types of poems to chose from.

folders
 
I am going to give them folders and have them keep their poems in the folder. I did acrostic and 4th grade does limerick so I am going to go with

Couplet
Cinquain
Concrete
List
Hiaku
One that shows a metaphor or simile
Sensory
And a poem for choice at the end

I hope that is not too much.

poetry unit study
 
I taught a poetry class to sixth graders at one time, pretty much they are the same for fifth and sixth graders. That ended up turning into unit study about writing poetry.
Basically I like to pick a theme and write a variety of poems about thattheme but of course we do the typical haiku couplet lantern etc. But prayer poems, list poems, rap poems are all interesting too.
If you want to contact me I can tell you more about the units I created for poetry.
