Biography Poems

Found in: back to school; icebreakers

On the first day of school, I ask my students to write a biography poem so I can get to know them. With the instructions, I include an example poem about myself so they learn about me. Once I collect their poems, I take notes on their interests, which lets me organize group work based on common interests. This helps them to work effectively together during class.

Not only do biography poems help me get to know the students, but they are also a great way to introduce a poetry unit.
