The Magic Box by Kit Wright

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Opera Diva, Nov 3, 2007.

  1. I already have lots of resources for this.

    Last year the children made their own boxes and filled them with their wow sentences etc...

    If you have used this poem - what have you done that was different and rather special?

  2. Have just googled (is that now a verb?!) the poem, never used it before but it's lovely. What yr group have you used it with? We will be doing our poetry unit in about 4 wks (yr 5) after our myths and legends. Would be a lovely thing to do and really like the idea of physically putting things in a box.
  3. The UNIT in GFW is aimed at Y3 - but that's really irrelevant.

    I have a less able Y4 class - it worked very well last year and some of their ideas were very thought provoking.

  4. I did this last year with my very challenging year 4's and the results were great. I love the idea of making their own boxes and putting their wow senetences in (just starting with VCOP) - I shall certainly be trying that this year.
  5. Do you have any success stories of creativity to share?

    I'm thinking about making a hugh box - big enough to fit me in!!!!!
  6. I have sent a copy of the poem to Greenmonster who says he has just the thing to make an IWB version! ;)
  7. I've used the poem before and the kids have loved it. Got some really god results at the end of it. Love your idea of actually making a big box!

    Opera, I'd put you in my magic box!

    I did a lesson where I changed it to "My Secret Box", just to make it a bit different.
