Children love the sound of rhyme and rhythm in a poem! What fun to let them write their own poems! This set of printables gives children an opportunity to write a wide variety of simple poems that are fun to write and a delight to read.

Children will learn to write the following poems:

We often write a sense poem in geography about a place and a name poem in history about a famous person. Poems are always fun! Enjoy!

In the early days of homeschooling, I created these simple forms to help my children write a variety of poems.

We never studied poetry as a unit, but added little poems to our other studies.

You can print these poetry forms in color or black and white. Each printable has lines for each line of the poem and a sample at the bottom of the page. The poems are pretty self-explanatory, very simple to use.
