I want to look at poems over the next three weeks in writing with my class. I have my three subject areas I wish to look at to tie in with our topic. I havent really taught poetry before and have been looking all night at resources on TES but feel I need human communication to help me. I was thinking that my two top groups could look at adjectives and similies and my bottom group could just look at adjectives within poetry. I then thought the next day the children could plan their own poems and then the next day write their poems. How do you teach poetry...what could I do to make this lesson more manageable...what key features should I be pointing out? Where can I get good poems to model to children? I am keen to learn as you can tell and very new to teaching so any help would be very much appreciated.
