Description

Introduce young students to the word of poetry with our Poetry Lesson Plan.  This hands-on lesson plan equips students to define and recognize poetry, as well as develops written expression and presentation skills as students write and read a poem to an audience.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Read a very short story to students and then read a short poem (Do not tell them what you are reading except for the titles). Ask: What is the difference between what I just read to you?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce poetry to students. Ask them if they have ever heard of other poems, if they can remember any, etc.?
  3. Allow for responses and discussion.
  4. Distribute the Poetry content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Use additional resources to enhance students understanding and to expose the students to more examples of the wide variety of poetry.
  5. Distribute the Practice page. This will be a warm-up for the activity. Review the instructions for each type of poem. Check and review the students’ responses.
  6. Distribute the Activity page. Read and review the instructions with the class. Explain carefully what “performing” the poem means.
  7. You may wish to read aloud the brainstorming questions with the class as they write in the answers.
  8. Circulate around the room while students are jotting down the notes, deciding on a poem, etc. Guide the students, but remind them it is their poem.
  9. When all students have completed their poems, assign a time slot for the Poetry Reading Day.
  10. Tell students to further proofread, edit, or change their poems as a homework assignment. Give students plenty of opportunities to prepare for the Poetry Reading Day.
