I love to write poems. Children do too.
Giving young children a simple structure or a repetitive pattern to start from gets them thinking about words, how they sound, what they mean, the number of syllables and letters, all the while having fun, playing with words and sounds and learning about language.
Christmas is a great time for writing poems.
The poems can be “published” inside a card, on a calendar, presented on a scroll or framed as a poster.
This package includes suggestions of five easy poem types to get you started:
"I love" poems, and
For each type of poem I have included:
• a description of the poem
• at least one example of each poem presented as a poster which can be used as a stimulus or explanation for students
• a template which can be used by students when writing their own poems
I hope you and your students enjoy writing poems as much as I and my students do.
Happy teaching and learning!
