Cinquain Poetry
  • A Cinquain poem is made up of five lines. The first line is one word that tells the subject of the poem. The second line has two adjectives that describe the subject. The third line has three action verbs that relate to the topic of the poem. The fourth line has four words that tell of a feeling, or a sentence that describes the subject in line one. The fifth line is a synonym of the topic that sums up the poem.
  • This is the stage that we brainstorm and organize our ideas.
  • It is important to establish the audience. (Teacher and peers)
  • We must determine the form of writing, and for this lesson it is Cinquain poetry.
  • Lastly, we must discuss the purpose of our writing, and that is to inform or entertain.

  • It is important to remember that the use of proper mechanics is not necessary for this stage in the writing process.

Revising and Editing
  • As you are reading your Cinquain poem, you need to make sure the content and the mechanics are correct. Make sure you use five lines and that each line describes the noun from the first line. On the rest of the four lines, make sure you use the correct adjectives, participles, a phrase, and a synonym. Use the correct word choice, and while proofreading, change words that are better suited for the noun.
