Help with poetry please

Discussion in 'Primary' started by auntmatilda, Feb 5, 2011.

  1. Sorry for repeat posting
    I am teaching one lesson next week to rec/yr1 we are writing a poem together.
    Could someone please help me with what I tell the children we are learning to do?
    Writing in a different style,rhyming words (but not necessarily), using describing words?
    What do we want the children to learn when we teach poetry? Sorry if I am being dense.
    Thanks for any help

    Alliteration?

    Similies - I know they are rec/yr1 but you could put some basic similes together and ask the children to finish them off.
     
  5. Surely it is up to you what you want them to learn? And that would be your learning objective.
    And remember poems don't have to rhyme.
