shape poems

Discussion in 'Primary' started by ljjsmith, May 2, 2011.

  1. Does anyone know of a shape poem I can read to year 4 at the end of an interview. I'm mainly focusing on 2D shapes withsome 3D for the HA group. I want to leave it with them to read and say after i've left,
  2. If i saw that I would ask - what did that add to the lesson? - would it not be a little weird at the end of a maths session? I would be more focussed on if the children have made any progress and they understood what they should have been learning in the lesson.

    This lost its shape when I posted! It looked fine in preview!
    I'll upload it into resources so that you can see it properly. It is a poem in the shape of the letter V.

    Exactly like a V by Abram Bunn Ross
    I've uploaded it, but it will take up to 60 minutes to appear in resources. The V is very triangular, but I don't know if this link to shape is too tenuous.

  6. The poem is not very good!

    Have you a better one to suggest Regency Rob?
    It actually looks better and is more effective in its proper shape.
    I was only trying to be helpful. [​IMG]

  8. Sorry Marlin! Its not even about shapes though is it its about letters!

    I found this:


    With snow on the top or a tent.

  10. Thats a better one MArlin but I would still question why you would use it in a shape lesson especially with HA year 5/6 children
  11. Thanks for all your help.
    I have planned all the lesson and just thought it would be something fun for them to hear in the very last few seconds but I agree Rob that it won't really add anything to my year 4 lesson- maybe I'll give it a miss then- Thanks anyway Marlin for all your searching!
