Introduction:

poetry projects printable activity pages - five line poemsA stanza is a group of lines of poetry (usually 4 or more) arranged according to a fixed plan.

"Five Line Poems" are a great way to introduce the idea of a stanza to a child -- each stanza of the poem is five lines (you'd usually have the children complete three or four stanzas).

When doing five line poems with children, give them the first or last line of each stanza and have them design the rest.  Remember, not all poems have to rhyme!

I AM FAST AND FUN
by Tasha (Age 9)

I am fast and fun.
I can dream, dreams that nobody has dreamt before.
I would go on adventures all over the world.
I want to write out my imagination.
I enjoy seeing peace.

I am fast and fun.
I want to fly and taste the air.
I am not afraid to say what I want.
I feel such smooth things that touch my fingers.
I find such pretty things in nature.

I am fast and fun.
I want to be a soccer star.
I think hard about things.
I wonder where we go when we fade.
I feel so great when I help someone.
