Preparation for Your Poetry Cafe: Poetry Workshop

By Beth Newingham on April 24, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

A Poetry Cafe makes an awesome learning experience for students and is a great way to celebrate Poetry Month.

To start, students study and write poetry in our classroom for a month. At the end of the unit, students create poetry books where they publish and illustrate their five favorite poems they wrote in writing workshop and also add two poems from favorite authors they studied in reading workshop.

You'll find a ton of poetry resources in the Scholastic Teacher Store.
