Poetry in Fourth-Grade

We Have Poets And We Didn't Know It!


Roses are red, violets are blue, our class is learning poetry, it's true.   In fourth-grade classes, we have been working on analyzing and writing poetry.  We have been learning the following terms regarding poetry: stanza, rhythm, meter, similes, metaphors, and rhyming.  Our class has also been exploring the different types of poems including concrete, alliteration, acrostic, free verse, and Limerick.  Together we have created a collection of our class' poems the students made and will soon be making them into poetry books.  I believe the writing was the part the class liked best.
