How to Write a Diamante Poem - Kenn Nesbitt's

A diamante – pronounced dee-uh-MAHN-tay – is an unrhymed seven-line poem. The beginning and ending lines are the shortest, while the lines in the middle are longer, giving diamante poems a diamond shape. “Diamante” is the Italian word for diamond, so this poetic form is named for this diamond shape. Believe it or not, the diamante was invented just 40 years ago. It was created by an American poet named Iris McClellan Tiedt in 1969, and has become very popular in schools. Also known as a “diamond poem” because of it’s shape, there are two different types of diamantes; synonym diamantes and antonym diamantes.

Adventures in Guided Journaling: Printable journal pages for kids

Here you'll find a selection of my free, printable, guided journal pages for kids. Just like my original guided journal pages these pages combine fill-in-the-blank journal prompts with unconventional to-do lists, game-show-inspired lightning rounds and oodles of hand-drawn doodles. There are also some key differences: I've made the lines a little thicker and the outer border wider for colouring,I've added a place for the child's name beside the date, I've reduced the number of prompts per page to make it easier to complete a page in one or a few sittings,I've simplified the prompts slightly to make them more suitable for younger journal keepers.In terms of age range, I'm thinking grades three to six.
