Making Digital Poetry Books

For the next several weeks, the Grade 6 class will be writing poetry and preparing for graduation. All this week will be devoted to learning how to write poems and working on a collection of six poems to share as a digital book (.epub) with everyone by the end of the year. The kids will be writing six different styles of poems: acrostic, shape, rhymed, free verse, cinquain, and haiku. We talked a lot about what a poem is and good processes for writing one. I recommended the the magic formula below which I devised for helping kids write poetry. Please also see the assignment packet to see more details about the task. I can't wait for everyone to see these kids' amazing work.
