The planning is done for you. Many of today's children are affected by marital breakdowns, some adjust, while others struggle to understand or move on easily. This poem looks at the decisions made by parents, their child's inner turmoil, and learning there is hope. It comes with oral and written language activities, along with some drama based activity ideas. I shared this poem with a teacher of students aged 11 to 13 years, and this was her feedback. 'It opened up some real vulnerabilities for a couple of my kids. AND gave the opportunity for positive steps forward! This produced some wonderful and reflective writing.'
This activity will keep your students busy talking, writing and acting for one to two weeks.
