A Student's Sestina Poetry Printable

A sestina is a poetry form with six stanzas of six lines each and a short three lined stanza at the end called an envoi.  Each line ends with one of six words.

I wrote "A Student's Sestina" about a student who would rather ride a skateboard than study.  When I shared this with students, some said, "I didn't know that poetry could tell a story."  We analyzed the poem for the elements of story: characters, setting, problem, and resolution.

This poem is in School Poems for Poetry Notebooks. This eBook contains thirty-seven original poems.

Happy Friday!
