Cinquain Poems

This week we have been looking at cinquain poems. We have learned which categories of words go on which line and how many syllables each line must have.

  • The first line must be a noun and only have 2 syllables.
  • The second line must be 2 adjectives which have 4 syllables in total.
  • The third line must be 3 ‘ing’ words, which have a total of 6 syllables.
  • The fourth line is a phrase made up of 8 syllables.
  • The last line must be a 2 syllable synonym.

Here are some of our cinquain poems we have written and performed. We also added images and designed some of our poems using the app Pic Collage to showcase them. Have we followed the rules? Can you add your own?
