Creative writing is a good outlet for fantastical ideas, emotions, and comedy. It's also a great way to have readers practice their language arts skills in a fun way! Readers learn the different kinds of poems they can write and how to begin crafting one, including use of the descriptive language and proper word choice as outlined in the Common Core. Fact boxes add helpful tips and definitions to aid in choosing a poem's subject, rhyme, rhythm, and structure. Relatable examples and a colorful layout help readers use their imagination throughout the writing process, from brainstorming to revision.
