Whatever you can do with poems… you can do with these! Share one with your class, recite it as a class/in assembly, recite it individually, act it out, analyse the language in it, the sounds, the ryhmes, write own version… the list is endless!!

The poems in this book are simple enough to be able to use them easily with KS2, KS3 and even KS4 pupils but have challenging enough language in them for them to get a lot out of them!
Any of the poems would be fab to celebrate National Poetry Day, this year on Thursday 28th September 2017... could be combined with the European Day of Languages on 26th!

The children will, as in stories, see familiar language in context, be exposed to superfluous language, enjoy listening to and working on the sounds, memorising the lines.. and more!

Topics or themes:
Food; Easter, Christmas, family, time of day, tooth fairy (or rather mouse), saying how you are feeling

Any of your choice based on the poem of your choice!


How much time required:
A lesson at a time several times a year!
