Portrait Poems

This is a very much detailed five-day plan on writing portrait poems. Throughout, class members review figurative language and work systematically to develop their poems. The teacher provides rubrics for the poem as well as a portrait they create in art class. It is supposed to reveal significant characteristics of the person they select as their subject. The instructional activity relates to the children's book Grandpa's Face by Floyd Cooper, but it is not integral. Related materials may not be accessible.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
