Sample List Poem
Help students understand that a list poem is a collection of thoughts, feelings, and sensations that describe a topic. It doesn't have to be exactly a list, but it needs to be full of details that bring the topic to life for readers.
Have a volunteer read the sample list poem. Ask students what details they like most from the poem—and why. Tell students that when they write their own list poems, they should try to find details that their readers will love.
You can also share another list poem with your students: "Winter Words."
