Fun Site to Teach Poetry!

         Poetry is one of my most favorite genres to teach in reading. To help spread the love of poetry, I use the site www.gigglepoetry.com  


   
       The website has many different funny poems about teachers, school lunch, homework, and other topics students can connect to. I use the poems to teach similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, alliteration, assonance, rhyme scheme, and so much more. The site also has poetry theater, which is turns poems into short plays for students to act out. Best of all the site is FREE!
