Twenty-six poetic forms are discussed in this paper, with suggested activities for teaching these patterns to students in grades kindergarten through grade twelve. The forms that are discussed include the couplet, quatrain, triplet, limerick, free verse, haiku, cinquain, sijo, septolet, diamante, acrostic, sonnet, parody, dramatic monologue, and narrative. Several poetic terms are explained, including spoonerisms, meter and rhythm, and poetic foot. Figurative language forms, such as alliteration, onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor, personification, and hyperbole, are also discussed. A list of poets for students of all ages and a list of publishers of children's poetry are included. (RL)
