It’s Poetry Month! Free Posters!

Hello there!  Happy Sunday!

Relaxing, Heavenly
Coffee, Brunch, Nap
Goes by too quickly

As you were probably made aware by my incredibly inspiring cinquain, we’re right smack dab in the middle of Poetry Month!  My students are only slightly aware, as I haven’t really touched on it except for randomly saying it out loud to them from time to time.

“It’s Poetry Month!”

“Oh hey everyone!  Good Morning!  Happy Poetry Month!”

“Did someone say Poetry Month?  Oh yes, I did.”

Starting tomorrow I actually plan on backing up my random comments by introducing a few types of poetry and reading or showing some examples to my very confused kiddos. 


I plan on projecting these posters I made on my projector/white board each day to give them a visual definition of each type of poetry.  Of course these posters would also look adorable printed and laminated as well!  After we go over the type of poetry being discussed, we’ll either make our own, or read a few examples.



They’re yours if you’d like to use them!  Please keep in mind that I haven’t listed all the types of poetry, and I probably won’t be adding anymore {at least this year!}.  I made posters only for the types of poetry I plan on covering with my guys and gals.

I’ll be back this week to share some of the ways we’ll be celebrating poetry in our classroom.  And Kate and I have a post planned for Write About It Wednesday this week too!  Our topic this Wednesday will be Expository Writing, so make sure you stay tuned or plan to link-up!

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend, friends!
