Diamante Poetry

April is National Poetry Month (and a big month for test prep too)! This quick, creative poetry writing activity will help you address both.

To write diamante, students will address these ELA standards for third and fourth grades:

  • distinguishing between poetry, prose, and drama (RL.4.5)
  • identifying nouns, verbs, and adjectives (L.3.1.A)
  • choosing words for effect and to convey ideas precisely (L.3.3.A, L.4.3.A)

Have fun!
