Diamante Poems : A Writing Resource from ReadWriteThink

Diamante Poems is a cool little resource that guides students into writing a Diamante Poem.  A Diamante is a type of poem that has a strict structure and does not have to rhyme.  A Diamante can be written as a Synonym Diamante or an Antonym Diamante. 

The project is a great way to review parts of speech such as nouns, adjectives, and verbs, as well as, practice creative writing and formatting in Word or Google Docs.  We are currently using the site to help us create a Diamante, then we re-type the Diamante in Word and practice our formatting skills by adding an image, a page border, changing the page color, text size and color, and adding a Word Art Title.

Thanks for highlighting one of the ReadWriteThink.org interactive tools. We are proud of what we have to offer on the site! If you are interested, we pay educators in the field for their lesson plan and teaching ideas. Please let me know if you would like more information.

Writing is a mystery so free ghost written rap lyrics can be provided by different ways. This is really good thing to have.
