Poetry Printable: In a Hole


I love using poetry to teach different ELA standards.  The poem shown above is a Sedoka, which fits the following pattern:
 
5 syllables
7 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables
7 syllables
7 syllables
 
You can use this poem to teach syllabication, or introduce the Sedoka poetry form.  You could extend the event described in the poem by have students infer what happened before and after the runner fell.
