April is National Poetry Month so I thought I would have my first blog post of the month all about poetry. I LOVE teaching poetry in my class especially with the older grades because they are very creative and are not always reliant on templates to fill in the blank. I am kind of sad that this year I won’t be able to use my Complete Poetry Unit in my class because I am teaching Grade 3/4 with mostly grade 3s and the unit is geared towards intermediate and middle school grades. This won’t stop me from sharing it with you all though : )
Below you will see the list of what is in the unit, pictures of the final products some of my students completed, as well as 2 FREE puzzles from the unit !!!!
