Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(297)
Turn your child into a poet as they come play and write with poetry in this ongoing class. We'll explore Haikus, Diamante, Cinquain, and Acrostic poems in a fun and interactive way!

Class Experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Students will learn the characteristics of the following poems:
- haiku
- dimante
- cinquain 
- acrostic

I am excited to offer this course as I have been teaching poetry in my classroom and library for over 15 years. My Master's in Reading and National Board certification has strengthened my teaching abilities and this is a topic which I love sharing with students. Often poetry is negatively viewed by students, but I work to make it fun, exciting, and interactive. My hope is students walk away with a newfound appreciation and love for poetry! Anyone can be a poet!
None; however students can explore teacher suggested resources on their own if they would like.
* paper and pencil/pen or you may use dry erase/wipe board and marker
please note: if it is easier for your child to type his/her poem, that is fine too!

I will share resources such as poetry books, websites, and other materials that students can further their investigation of poetry.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For the haiku class, we will use the following website: 
I will share the site as part of my instructional focus and will work together with students to complete a class haiku. Students are able to freely explore the haiku link after our class.
