Two/three fun and easy-to-do lessons for poetry work in Grades 3 to 5. These would also be ideal for use around World Poetry Day.
The lessons are based on 'The Jumblies' nonsense poem, by Edward Lear. All lesson resources, differentiated activities, answers and planning are provided as part of the pack.
Lesson 1: Reading the poem and identifying various key features. Then planning a diary of the Jumblies' adventure.
Lesson 2 (and 3 if needed): Writing 1 or 2 diary entries for the Jumblies' adventure.
There is differentiation built into both lessons, with challenge tasks and activity support for those who need it.
The flexibility of the lessons means that I have been able to use them in Grades 3 to 5, but they could also be easily adapted for younger children.
Please note: some video links are included in the sessions, which should always be assessed for suitability prior to use!
