In Troys writing group we have been working on Poems and how different poems have different things that you might need to add in the poem. I will tell you about all the different types of poems we have learnt about.
A limerick is a poem that is allowed to rhyme. But you have to follow the correct amount of sentences and words in the poem. 
Free Verse Poetry is basically free, because you are sort of allowed to do whatever you want in the poem. You don't have to follow any rules, and it doesn't have to rhyme. 
A Cinquian is more strict about what you have to follow, unlike Free Verse Poetry. You have to follow a particular way you write your poem. The syllable pattern is 2,4,6,8,2. Also you don't want to give away to much information because you want the reader to figre out what your poem is about.

Troy's writing group have made a slide with our poems on them so you can see the different poems and guess which poem matches the different poems I have included above.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think your poems look great and you have worked hard to create lots of examples for people to see. There are also some great language features in there. Like similes and Repetition. Next time you could work on your Cinquains because you need to practise the format. You could try different subjects. rosalind:)

Evaluation: I think that I have done a great job with my poetry because I have added in everything that I need to add into my poems to make them interesting. Rosalind said that I needed to work on the format and have different subjects but I disagree with her because I think that I have included those really well.
