Poem Assignment - 8th grade - DUE 1/25

It's time for you to write an original poem! It can be any length, any form of poetry, and about any topic! 

You must:

  1. identify the form of poetry you have written in
  2. use at least TWO examples of figurative language such as:
    alliteration, simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole


  • Start with a brainstorm! Look around you or think of things that inspire you! It can be something simple or something deep. Make a big list of ideas and then pick one to write about, or draw a picture to help you!
  • Don't forget sensory details to help the reader create an image in his or her mind!
  • Remember to create "music" in your poem by using sound devices such as rhythm, meter, repetition, and rhyme.

Happy writing, poets!
