Students were introduced to cinquain with the explanation:
Cinquain poems have five lines that follow a very definite order:
Students then practiced as the teacher called out a noun and then called on several students to give adjectives to describe that noun.
The students were then shown the poetry template for this poem and we completed a practice poem together on the SMARTBoard.
Next, the students opened their templates and began writing their poems on the computer.
When they completed their poem, they could select a clip art graphic to add to their poem.
Please feel free to use these templates with your students as you would like.
