Writing Poetry for the Fall Season is here to help you save time and incorporate fun and creative poetry writing lessons into the fall season.
Looking for ways to incorporate the fall season into your poetry writing?
Are you introducing poetry to your students?
Do you need to help your reluctant or struggling students with thematic writing that includes the fall season?
This will help.
 
This easy-to-use fall 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 fall 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 William Blake’s Two Sunflowers Move in a Yellow Room. 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 ‘Fall Poetry Collection’. Pages are included for the cover and an individual-themed page for each type of poem.

Additional ideas:
A creative writing resource that also ties in with the same fall theme is Team Writing – Swap a Story (fall).Using the same theme or general subject matter allows struggling students or students learning English to be more successful because of the same vocabulary can be used for both.
