This set of 52 task cards is ideal for use in a poetry/literacy center. The skills range from simple identification of high frequency words to writing original poetry. Copy the cards on card stock, laminate, and use for years to come.
Some cards utilize dotted boxes, allowing you to choose the component on which you wish to have your students work. For example, card #13 asks your students to find all the words with a consonant blend; you choose which blend and write it in the box with a grease pencil or Vis-à-vismarker. Also included are 4 blank cards, allowing you to add content of your own choosing.
Various types of poetry are included in this unit. A perfect complement to this product is my PICK A PACK OF POETRY POSTERS. The full color posters explain 20 poetic types, providing a quick reference for students and teachers. Display the appropriate poster in your poetry center when challenging your students to write their own verse.
