This supplemental workbook introduces students to all types of poetry: traditional, free verse, narrative, and lyric. Students learn about and practice common forms such as acrostics, tankas, and haikus, as well as some uncommon forms such as travel poems, parodies, and name poems. Activities also features elements of poetry, including figurative language, rhythm, meter, repetition, and rhyming.
The exercises are black-and-white reproducible pages, and can be used as part of any English, language arts, or creative writing course. Written by the same author as the popular Create-A-Story series.
