A poetry worksheet helps students create the appropriate structure for specific types of poems, such as a Shakespearean sonnet, Italian sonnet, villanelle, haiku, and limerick.
Poetry can be challenging enough, but formulaic styles of poetry with set rhyme schemes, syllables, and lines can be very hard for students to craft on their own. Sonnets, villanelles, haikus, and limericks seem daunting because they have so many rules. Poetry templates help writers follow those rules so that they can recreate the rhythm, rhyme scheme, and formula of these strict, but popular, forms of poetry.
