Poetry Tools Visual Anchor Chart


Teach poetry tools for kids successfully with a visual anchor chart. Here is a visual anchor chart that you can create with your class as you study a unit of poetry. Practice each poetic device (personification, imagery, repetition, alliteration, metaphor, line breaks, simile and rhythm) and add it to your anchor chart to help students see that they can be successful in writing poetry too.

Poetry Tools for Kids

What can help students write better poetry other than remembering the different types of poetry? Giving them the tools and understanding how to use them. Give each poetry tool a visual hand-held tool as an icon of sorts so that they can have a reference when it’s time to write. Learning to use imagery, alliteration, personification, metaphors, line breaks, rhythm and similes can be very powerful for students.
