Spring  Poetry

Spring Poetry

Updated for Spring 2018! Download our five-lesson literacy unit of poetry planning for Years 1 and 2, based on performing Spring poetry and built around the KS1 new curriculum literacy objectives. In this unit, pupils will read a classic Spring poem about a fast white bunny and they will consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when the poem is read aloud, particularly reflecting on the use of verbs and similes. Children will work towards creating their version of the Easter poem and turning it into an effective performance. The aims of the unit for pupils are: • To listen to a classic Spring poem being read aloud • To identify verbs and similes • To prepare a poetry performance including actions • To perform a poem to an audience The PDF file contains 5 full literacy lesson plans, copies of the poem and all accompanying pupil resources.

Early Childhood Education A Unit 2 day 4 Science center activity posters

Early Childhood Education A Unit 2 day 4 Science center activity posters

These colored activity posters support and allow the students to experience the day’s topic through child activity centers. Students can rotate through these center activities just as the children would in the center. All you just need to do is put out the supplies and then stand back and let them experience. Each poster includes the instructions so students and children can perform the activity. Use these activity posters with the correlating lesson plan and power point. -I like to organize my centers by placing each laminated activity card in a gallon baggie with all of the necessary supplies to execute that activity included in the baggie. I will place these "activities in a bag" around the room for students to, during specific set aside class time, go around and experience the activities on their own choice and at their own time. This models how we let the children do centers during preschool discovery time. When the day is over. Gather up all of the baggies and store them in a box until next time. -Look for BOTH the lesson plan and the power point that supports this day. -You can buy this item in an entire unit bundle that includes every power point, activity, lesson plan, and resources needed to teach the unit.
