teaching riddles year 2

Discussion in 'Primary' started by ems03, Mar 27, 2008.

  1. hi, next week I need to do a week (probably only 4 days actually) on riddles in prep for the SATs after easter. I'm an NQT in yr 2 and don't really know how to go about it! The kids have researched a minibeast to use, but what activites can I do apart from just writing the riddles themselves? Need maximum impact in a short amount of time! Obviously for my highers, the structure of the riddle will be a focus e.g. start of with a clue that gives hardly anything away but I'm not sure what whole class activities to do throughout the week as it seems quite boring? My brain hurts and I can't think - any ideas from people who have taught this before are really appreciated!!!
