This All About Me poetry set contains all of the teaching resources that you will need for your students to write a biography poem about themselves for a fun creative writing activity.
There are a lot of different versions of biographical poems that teachers have developed over the years. I never found one that used fun writing templates, so I created my own version of this popular All About Me poetry activity.
These All About Me Poems contain first draft printable worksheets that will assist and guide your students in writing the 9 lines of this biography poem.
For the final draft of these biographical poems, students write the 9 lines of their poems inside 9 pencil templates, with each pencil increasing in width. After your students have colored their pencil templates, you will have a dynamic and colorful poetry display to post on your classroom bulletin board.
This pencil shaped poetry set contains three templates that assemble into 9 horizontal pencils. The finished All About Me Poems measures 10 inches in width and 15 inches in height.
These finished projects will make a colorful bulletin board display of your students' work. Everything that you need to complete these projects is included in this set of poetry lesson plans. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.
There are 9 lines of poetry for this biography poem assignment.
This All About Me biography poetry set includes two first draft worksheets. There is an example poem for students to use as a reference at the top of the first worksheet.
Below are examples of the first draft writing worksheets. Students should proofread and edit their first drafts before they begin writing on their final draft pencil templates.

After students have edited their first drafts, you should give them their final draft poetry templates. Students can color their pencil templates after they have finished writing their poems.
Below is an example of the 3 final draft pencil writing templates.

I have been buying your unique teaching resources for a few years now, and I just love them! My students are much more engaged in doing book reports as well as other creative writing assignments because of you. Thank you.

Hi Heidi. I just want t say that my class is year one in Australia and they just love all of your work. We use your book report projects religiously and it has made my teaching and the students' learning improve by about 100%. The students just love it. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi there! I just found your website through Pinterest, and I am looking forward to using your book reports that I just bought to help motivate my fifth grade students! Thanks for putting these out there. I'm a relatively new teacher and need all the help I can get!

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
