I am sharing this freebie to celebrate Poems of Sillinessthird anniversary. I started writing a poem every day from October 2011 through December 2013. I started up again writing three times a week.
A square poem is where the number of lines equal the number of syllables in each line. I started writing them for my blog Poems of Silliness, and then I discovered that others write square poems including Henry Lok who wrote one for Queen Elizabeth I in 1597.
Once you have introduced this to the whole class, you can have this be a choice for fast finishers. Included in this product is a word sorting sheet and fourteen original examples.
