Poetry Pack {mini-giveaway!}

I am so excited about the new POETRY PACK I just created! 

I have a little secret, I have hated teaching poetry in the past. I personally love writing poetry, but it just seemed so hard to teach. 

Which poems do I teach about? 
How in-depth do I go? 
What resources do I use? 
What do I expect students to produce at the end? 

It just seemed so confusing.

Well, as you know, I will be going on maternity leave sometime in the next couple of weeks. I usually teach poetry in May, but I didn't know how/what to write for sub plans. Like I mentioned, I never had any good resources. I knew that in order to write my sub plans, I would have to come up with something great...

And this, my friends, is my finished product:
This Poetry Pack includes 11 poetry posters. Each poster includes a description of the poem and an poem to use as an example. (All poems are original - written by me.)

This pack also includes a half-sized blank book of poems for your students to create their own published book of poetry. 

This unit should last about 3 weeks. Teach one poem each day and have students work on their own original rough draft of the poem (11 days total). Save some days at the end so that all students can create their own published book of poems. 

I recommend copying the blank book of poems on cardstock and binding it down the side. Your students' finished products will look something I like this: 
Just for fun, here's a little mini-giveaway:
