Jabberwocky

Jabberwocky

A selection of resources for a lesson or lessons about the poem Jabberwocky. I ask students to find 10 nonsense words in the poem. Use the planning sheet to help them design monster. Write a description of their monster. Write a story of poem about their monster using some words they have made up, or made up words from the poem. Here you may need to spend some time deciding what these words mean. Finally an activity on non-fiction writing to support pupils to include titles, sub-titles, captions and to write in paragraphs. Use the example about Komodo dragons to spot these features. Use the information about Swordfish (easier) and Ichthyosaurus (harder as headings are not included and the information is not in order) or your own research to write your own non-fiction article about a real life monster.

Watch Out for the Dragon! Descriptive writing sheet, 3 grades: R, Y1, Y2

Watch Out for the Dragon! Descriptive writing sheet, 3 grades: R, Y1, Y2

Watch out for the dragon - but what sort? Scary? Crazy? Hot and spiky? Red, green, wild, funny? Your Reception and KS1 children will be eager to express their ideas, both out loud and in writing. Never mind if their word is hard to spell - they can sound it out and give it a go, building confidence in their writing skills as they go. Not that dragons have to be scary, of course - ‘Watch out for the kind or friendly dragon!’ would be equally valid - as in: don’t miss him/her. The gender can also be changed. There are 3 versions here, of graded difficulty, the last inviting describing words for spikes and scales too, and ideas for the dragon’s favourite food. NB (1) Please note that my hand-drawn illustrations are sketchy. However, in my experience, children don’t mind or notice this. NB (2) Older/abler Yr 2s will welcome further lines, perhaps inviting similes, e.g. He’s as hot as a… or [colour] … as a. These could be squeezed in or written on the back, or the sheet could be manually adapted. More advanced versions coming here in due course.
