** If you like this freebie, please rate it and leave a comment. Bio Poems Made Easy is one of the top 15 free downloads on TpT because so many of you have taken time to do just that! Thanks so much! **

A bio poem is a simple poem written about a person, and it follows a predictable pattern. You can have students write Bio Poems about themselves, but later you can have them write about famous historical figures or book characters. This lesson includes directions, graphic organizers, a Bio Poem planning page, a sheet of decorative writing paper, and an example bio poem. 

Looking for a terrific writing activity that also serves as a back to school icebreaker? Check out Buddy Bio Poems!
