What teachers are saying about using this poetry writing booklet:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is my most favourite purchase from TPT! It was so engaging for my class. We made a challenge of writing and publishing one poem a day. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I needed some content for a 3-week poetry writing mini-unit and this fit the bill perfectly. It comes with all of the necessary elements a teacher could need and is at your fingertips to put together and use quickly. I loved it. I highly recommend this resource!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I was a bit worried about how my MS students would react to writing poetry. What a wonderful surprise I had when I saw their finished products in the "BioPoem" assignment. The process is so clearly laid out that even my most insecure students were able to create a wonderful poem. They even asked me to read them aloud to the class! It doesn't get much better than that in MS. Thank you for publishing this product, I look forward to using the rest of the items.
