These grammar poems are great for getting students to practice vocabulary, write and present.

First do one on the board together for whatever topic. Then distribute the worksheets.

The students make a rough copy. Once edited and checked - give them another copy (or just print the handout double sided) and they can make a final copy and decorate.

Finally, have them read and present the best ones. Hang them on the class/school walls!
