Manipulate the text, write our own poems, investigate rhymes and grammar points. Please see my blog for the description of the activities!

The poem fits in with our topic “Clothes” and gives us the opportunity to learn new vocabulary and make up our own versions of the poem. It also features plural forms of nouns, the verb “tiene”and adjectives that pupils need to be aware of. The poem has a very catchy rhythm, hopefully it will be popular with the pupils.

The pupils will produce their own version of the poem, or part of the poem.

Topics or themes:
The poem will fit in well with our “Clothes” topic (vocabulary) and with grammar points (plurals, adjectives).

The verb “tiene”, plurals, place of adjectives, the preposition “con”, the sounds “ll”, “qu”, “ñ”, “rr”.

Playing games, using their imagination and thinking of rhymes.

How much time required:
The poem will appear in every lesson during 6 weeks (the duration of a half term) with different activities.
