This is our Poet-Tree. My students have been hard at work this week adding new poems to their poetry portfolios. With so many boys in my classroom, I have quite a few reluctant writers this year. For that reason, I decided to leave poetry until the end of the year. Now that many of them have increased confidence in their writing skills, they have been more open to exploring the various forms of poetry. We've added 5 new poems to our poetry portfolios (with more to come). Come on over and visit my blog to see the poems we've been working on this week. I also included a link to a little poetry resource I found years and years ago. If you are looking for a (free) starting place to find some quick and easy poetry templates, you've got to check this link out.
