Duo Poems
Song Lyric Poem
YOU Responsive Poem
Pair students and have them create a poem together. There will be lines said together and separately when they perform.
Create a poem and insert song lyrics into it. The poem can be spoken in its entirety or the students can sing when they get to the lyrics
The students write a poem to someone. That someone is always referenced directly without being named.
ex: I love you vs. I love Steve.
Take up poems and redistribute them to different people. The students will read, interpret and write a response to the poem.
This is for the daily writing exercise. Put a single word or phrase into the box. This will be the subject for the day. Do not explain the subject. Let them interpret it for themselves.
Always make the daily writing timed. 6-10 minutes is plenty of time. You can also add restricting the number of lines they can write.
Daily Sharing
After the daily writing exercises allow the students to share if they would like. Pick certain writing exercises where you would like to hear from everyone. Also, some students will write additional poems on their own and will ask you if they can share those. Whether or not you allow them is to your discretion.
