PPt Writing a Poem "To Make a Teacher Angry"

The PowerPoint is the expansion of an idea by Ann Ryan on Teaching Ideas.
It is suitable for ages 7 - 11 and explores how language can be used out of context to create an interesting effect. It includes an example final poem, as well as lots of food images and example adjectives to help children make a start on their own work.

In this idea a menu of typically annoying things (to a teacher) are presented in a menu format, forming a poem, eg A platter of juicy late homework.

It explores both menu vocabulary and interesting “foody” adjectives.

I did this with a Year 5 class to celebrate National Poetry Day.
