Step-by-step Forms of Poetry Worksheets

Each of these sheets are two pages. We first walk you through writing a poem in a certain style and then we prompt you through writing your own poem in this format.

Writing Acrostic Poetry - This form of poetry takes the very letters of a word or phrase and prompts you to write sentences that are both themed to the word or phrase and contain the letter(s) you are working with.

Alphabet Poetry - This format uses the letters of the alphabet in order. Great birthday idea for you on this one too.

Autobiographical Poetry - Write about yourself and be critical.

Writing Ballads - Usually written in singing format, they can really make the classroom a fun place.

Cinquain Poetry - This is a very standardized format that math oriented people like, for some reason.

Color Poetry - Express all your senses when using this format.

Diamante Poetry - When I was a kid, the teacher introduced this poem format as the style that is shaped like a "woman's best friend". I remember thinking, "How does she know my dog Cody?"

Epitaph Poetry - Take a sad art and give it a little bit of life.

Explorer Poetry - Yes, this is part of the core curriculum. That caught us by surprise too.

Writing Haiku - A traditionally short format. Originating from Japan.

I Wish Poetry - Everything in this one starts with "I wish..."

Lie Poetry - These are awesome! I love to read what the kids come up with.

Limericks - Often very funny. Many kids have fun with these.

Monster Poems - Write about that monster under your bed or in your closet.

Rhyming Poetry - It's Rhyme time! Fun by the ton!

Shape (Or Concrete) Poems - Just knowing they need to create a shape, kids go the extra mile for this style of poetry.

Third Eye Poems - These poems are so fun, but hard for students to get a handle on quickly.
