FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Free Ruler of the World Poem”

by Darlene Anne
5th - 8th Grade

Free Poetry Writing: Ruler of the World Poem

Middle school students LOVE writing template poetry. The beauty of using the template is that when they try it, even the kids who don't usually care for poetry writing can find their inner Robert Frost. The confines of the template focuses them. Its simplicity enables them to easily get their initial ideas down, making the whole experience less daunting. 

And once the kids have finished their first draft, I always remind them that this is their poem. They can alter the template in any way they see fit when they revise. 

This template is part of this resource: Poetry Writing Stations
