Get even your most reluctant pupils reading, writing, reciting, and maybe even enjoying poetry! A four day lesson, young writers learn about Golden Shovel poems: a poem format that uses borrowed words from other poems as the last words in each line of a new poem. In addition to providing many poems for your class to read and discuss, this resource also contains detailed procedures for writing, revising, and presenting student poetry. Be sure to make time for the optional Poetry Cafe; it is a real crowd pleaser!
