Students will write their own original poems with this lesson and activity created for middle school students (6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade).
Make writing poetry fun for students by giving them choice! Students will first learn about five different types of poems. Then, they will choose 3 of the 5 poems they’d like to write. Students will write their rough drafts in a packet, and then finalize their work on blank pieces of paper which result in beautiful wall art for your room.

- Powerpoint presentation that includes examples and definitions of the following 5 types of poems: Haiku, Acrostic, Concrete, Limerick, and Free Verse
- Student packet that includes: directions, requirements, and examples of all 5 poems
