⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved using this resource during our writing block this past month. My students had fun with the different kinds of poems and chose their favorite 3 to "publish" at the end. Thank you!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was super simple to use! It has great examples and explanations of how to write each poem. I love being able to share them online, as well!
