Poetry is the foundation of any GOOD writing program.

alphabet books are a great way to build literacy and vocabulary
color poems – list things that are a color and then print in that color
Found poems – start with book with pretty language, copy 1 page, have students find hidden poems and circle or highlight the words you like, rewrite words on a new page
