Poetry Vocabulary Sheets Containing Examples
April is National Poetry Month in the U.S. BoomWriter offers a good resource for those teaching poetry this month. On BoomWriter's free resources page you will find a set of poetry vocabulary sheets that you can share with your students. In those vocabulary sheets you will find lists of key terms, definitions, and examples of different types of poems.
After reviewing BoomWriter's poetry vocabulary sheets to your students you can use BoomWriter's poetry anthology activity. In the poetry anthology activity students individual write poems then work together to assemble an anthology of the poems created by their peers. Students can organize the classroom poetry anthology according to poem types and topics. As a teacher you can monitor the construction of the anthology from your teacher dashboard in BoomWriter. BoomWriter is completely free to use for this activity.
