Poetry Forms


Poems can be used as follow-up work for just about any lesson. Having reference cards for your students to select from is a classroom must-have!


  • A fill-in-the-bank template for bio poems (this is an excellent first day of school activity)
  • A title card with the etymology for “poem”
  • Seven poetry forms explained with examples
    • Haiku
    • Tanka
    • Acrostic
    • Cinquain
    • Bio poem
    • Color poem
    • Diamante

A 4 page PDF that is meant to be printed double-sided with short-edge binding.

Each card is 3″ x 5″- the size of a standard index card. I store all of my index card sized materials in these plastic envelopes: https://amzn.to/42gMmwi
