What is an ‘I Am’ Poem?

Have you ever heard of an ‘I Am’ poem? It’s a personal poem where writers describe themselves using various prompts. Pupils love them because they are a great way to express themselves and feel understood. Teachers love them because they help them gain insights into who their pupils really are. Writing these types of poems can help pupils become more self-aware and encourage emotional growth in those who write them.

Get Started With An ‘I Am’ Poem Template

Pupils can use the included ‘I Am’ Poem template to create their own ‘I Am’ Poems. They work well as a beginning-of-year activity in which they read their poems together as a group activity. They could even write them independently and share them anonymously in a class book or slide deck. 

This printable template gives pupils the structure and prompts to create memorable ‘I Am’ Poems.
