I thought about doing a poetry center. (5th grade) I have a ton of poetry books. What sort of activity can they do? I need something for the kids to be accountable for as they read especially since I will be working with another group. My stations are 20-30 min.

Find figures of speech, highlight them on their copy or write that part in their notebook, identify if they are a simile, metaphor, personification.... and then write an explanation of what it means.

Discuss author's purpose in a reading response.

Discuss tone of poem and site examples from poem that support that.

Illustrate a poem.
Replace words in the poem with synonyms.
Write your own poem on the same topic.

I've had my 4th graders find a poem to memorize to perform for the class. They practice reading it, (improves fluency) and present it when they are ready.

I have a poetry portfolio. On the left page they write their poem and illustrate the border depending on what the poem was about. On the right page they can (on the same line) write difficult words, synonyms, mood of poem (you know....sort of like interactive notebooks only it's with poetry and they're using skills on each line of the poem. Does it make sense?
