Matariki – Cinquain Poetry

Matariki – Cinquain Poetry

Celebrate the Māori New Year with this fun poetry writing activity. Lift the flap to see the poem underneath the decorative star. 1. Write (draft) the poem on the student template. This is located on the same sheet as the star (to reduce photocopying!). 2. Colour the star. 3. Publish the poem on the big circle template. 4. Cut both circles out. 5. Staple the circles together at the top. These look wonderful displayed on the classroom wall. There are 5 different star templates, allowing plenty of choice and variety. The Cinquain Poem looks at nouns, verbs, adjectives and synonyms so it is the perfect writing activity to compliment your word work programme. There are two different frameworks included in this resource (see below). Included: ♦ Framework chart - A and B ♦ Example poems. ♦ Publishing templates - front and back - 5 different star options ♦ Publishing template with a blank star (students design their own) ♦ Additional student handouts (for students to draft their writing on). 2 per A4 page. You probably won't need these, but handy to have just in case. A full set of resources are included for both frameworks. Made on A4 size paper. Two sheets of paper are required for each published poem (front circle with star and back circle with poem). Approximate size when cut out is 18cm in diameter. Framework A: 1 Noun (topic) 2 Adjectives 3 Verbs (-ing words) 4 Nouns 1 Synonym Framework B: The same as Framework A except line four changes to a ‘4 word phrase’. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
