2 Thank you for purchasing this poetry notebook template. I hope you enjoy using it with your students as much as I enjoyed creating it. The pages are notebook ready. There are lines for students to record definitions and research on each term, type of poetry, and famous poet. On most pages there is an empty box in which students my illustrate the topic of that page or, as my children did, find an example of the term or type of poetry and copy it, cut it out, and glue it to the page. I purposely left a majority of the artwork black and white. Students may feel free to add color or artwork if they so desire. In the section entitled My Original Poetry there are notebooking pages with the type of poetry which is to be written by the student listed at the top of the page. The pages are blank so students may either write their poems freehand or type them and glue them on the page. There is plenty of room for illustration, too. The last section is for poetry analysis. The pages are formatted, but blank. You and your student may choose the poems to analyze and may decide on what items to address in his/her analysis of the poems, according to the student s age and ability. There are many excellent resources on the Internet for researching poetry terms, types of poetry, and famous poets. Have fun with your research! Let the world of poetry come alive for you and your student! Sarah Dugger

3 Star-Studded Poetry An Eight Week Journey Through The World of Poetry Resources: - This is an interactive website where students can fill in the blanks and create form type poems. Geared more toward 4 th -8 th grades, although high school grades would have fun with it. - Alphabetical listing of famous poets and poem, very comprehensive and user friendly. - excellent website, done by a group of middle school English teachers, lots of resources and links. There is a powerpoint presentation link which very closely corresponds to the terms in the poetry dictionary pages in the notebook. - lesson and activities on lyric poetry - another school website filled with tons of links for poetry resources. - glossary of poetic terms - glossary of poetic terms - nice listing of different types of poetry along with explanations for each - links to a.pdf document that teaches several types of poetry. - kid friendly poetry information website with links to other poetry sites.

4 Let s Get Started!!! Step One: Print your Star-Studded Poetry notebooking pages. I like to print the front cover on cardstock so it is sturdy. The rest of the pages can be on plain paper. I have even color coded the different sections before when I have used this. (For example, Dictionary of poetry terms Yellow; Famous Poets Light Blue; etc ) Step Two: Binding this is up to you. I have coil or spiral bound the pages before the kids work on it then it is more like a workbook. I have also printed pages and placed them in plastic page protectors. This option allows for kids to make mistakes and print out another page to recopy it. Another option is to print the pages and as they are completed, scrapbook the pages. This would make a really lovely presentation. You could also coil or spiral bind the pages after your child completes them. The sky s the limit!!! Step Three: Dive in! Here is a sample schedule: Before you begin the actual study allow your student to examine the lyrics of some of his/her favorite songs. Discuss how lyrics are just poems set to music. Try to introduce the poetry unit as something fun and exciting, not something boring. Many students hear the word poetry and retreat swiftly!!! If they hear you reading some fun poems and showing genuine excitement in studying poetry, they will catch the excitement! Days 1-5: Work on creating the dictionary of poetry terms. The dictionary is divided into several sections. Each page, at a minimum, should contain a good definition of each term, an example of each term either written by the student or taken from an existing poem, and either an illustration of the term or a short poem demonstrating the term (this would go in the large blank box). Your student will need to complete approximately eight terms per day. Days 6-20: Each day your student will study one of the different types of poetry. The notebook pages should contain a good description/definition of the type of poetry listed on the page including pertinent information such as type of rhyme pattern, type of meter, any other patterns in the poetry, etc The blank boxes are excellent areas to either copy, or print and paste an example of each type of poetry. An extra sheet has been included at the end of the section for your student to be able to include any other types of poetry he/she may find during research.

5 Days 20-22: Students will cover the sections on Figurative language and other poetic devices. They will research the terms in the same way they have been doing. They will need to cover four terms per day. Days 23-27: Students will be studying some famous poets. Pages are just lined. Students will write brief biographies of the poets on the notebook pages. They may print and paste sample poems on the backs of the pages if they so desire. A blank page is included at the end of this section so students may study other poets if they like. Days 28-33: My Original Poetry: Using the pages already completed on different types of poetry, students will write and illustrate their own poems in this section. I prefer to let my students write their poems, type them, print them out, and then paste them to the page. It looks much nicer. Make sure and put the date written on each poem. It makes it fun to go back and look at later! There are blank pages in this section so students can write more poems or other types of poems, too! Days 35-40: Poetry Analysis and Interpretation: There are four sheets in this section, although you could print more or less according to your needs. You or your student should pick at least four different poems to analyze. I like to use some classic poems like Shakespearean Sonnets, or Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, The Mending Wall, The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, or Paul Revere s Ride. You choose the poems according to your student s interest level and ability. Students need to read the poem several times. Each time they read the poem they should be watching for the use of the poetic terms and devices they have studied in this unit. They can analyze the form, rhythm pattern, meter, stanza form, and other devices used in the poem. Next they need to try to read the poem on a deeper level searching for symbolism and meaning from the poem. Extras: Some pages that are only lined are included at the end of the notebooking pages. You may use these for copywork pages if you do copywork with your students. Classic poems make fabulous copywork! You may also use them if you need pages to continue a page in progress where your student has run out of room. Have fun delving into the world of poetry! Your student may be a famous poet just waiting to be discovered!!!
