To end our celebration for National Poetry Month, we have prepared 3 fun poetry-related lesson plans that you and your students will enjoy! Your students will have fun learning about poetry and how to write a Haiku and diamante poem.
Remember: You can use Voki lesson plans for a higher, or lower, grade than the one you teach. These Voki lesson plans can be adapted and customized to fit your unique style or your students’ abilities!
