Looking for ways to incorporate the summer season into your writing?
Are you introducing poetry to your students?
Do you need to help your reluctant or struggling students with thematic writing that includes summertime?
I gotcha.
 
This easy-to-use summer poetry resource has everything you need to help the students write four different forms of poetry. Reference sheets are provided to copy and keep in their writer’s folder for later reference. Also, a thematic cover sheet and publishing pages for students to assemble a collection of their favorite summer poems for display.
 
These easy-to-follow ideas offer fun and creative ways for students to engage with poetry. I have included a ‘visualizing poetry’ lesson using Paul Laurence Dunbar’s Summer in the South. Poetry is the language of the soul, and with such strong imagery, I enjoy having students participate in a visualizing lesson a few times a year.
 
Also included are four individual explanation pages with examples covering four different forms of poetry. These four poems are acrostic, concrete, free verse, and couplet. These sheets will guide the students through how to write each type of poem.
 
Because time is ALWAYS limited and teachers have too much to do, included are a student checklist and two scoring rubrics so you can score your students’ individual writings and their poetry collection writing. Students can choose their favorite poem from each type, take it through the writing process, write a final copy, then publish a ‘Summer Poetry Collection’. Pages are included for the cover and an individual-themed page for each type of poem.

These Might Help:

A beginning-of-the-year creative writing resource that also ties in with the same summertime theme is My Summer Vacation. Using the same theme or general subject matter allows struggling students or students learning English to be more successful because the same vocabulary can be used for both.
