The leaves are changing colors, the weather is getting cooler (finally!) and I am inspired to cook lots of yummy, things! (I've already made a Pumpkin Roll, and some Soft Ginger Spice Cookies, among other things.)
A few days ago, as I was helping my daughter with one of her homeschool lessons, I got the idea to put together a little poetry lesson/activity for the kids.
Given the fact that it was a math lesson... place values, more specifically, that I was helping her with, I have no idea how the thought of poetry got into my brain!
At any rate, it did, and here we are.
I put together a few poetry printables with an Autumn theme.
I loved doing Cinquain poems when I was a kid. One of the things I like about them as an adult, is that they are a good way to reinforce or introduce parts of speech.
The basic format for a Cinquain Poem is:
-ing Verb, -ing Verb, -ing Verb
Noun (Synonym of original noun)
Here is the worksheet we did:
I made this one, and a couple others as printables, to share with you!
The other poetry worksheet I am including is a 5W Poem worksheet. You simply use the 5W questions as a format to your poem- Who, Where, What, When, & Why.
I am also including a little Halloween treat for you!
