Writing a shape poem worksheet

Writing a shape poem

A shape poem is a poem that is written in the shape of what it is about. Think of something you want to write about (an animal, food, weather, a haunted house, a forest, etc.) Get a blank piece of paper and write some words and phrases about the object all over it. See if you can include some really good similes! Choose your best words and phrases and write these into a few lines. There are no rules! Your poem doesn’t have to rhyme, can be any length, can be written from the point of view of the object – whatever you like! Draw a picture of the object you are writing about. When you are happy with your poem, write it neatly into the picture you have drawn. Colour in the picture with colouring pencils (not pen as this will ruin your writing!). Your shape poem is complete.
