Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.

Student Poetry Workbook - Eduqas Poetry - Grids for Poetry Analysis + Exam PreparationQuick View

Student Poetry Workbook - Eduqas Poetry - Grids for Poetry Analysis + Exam Preparation

This is a fantastic student workbook which can be used from the beginning of Y10 GCSE English Literature. Completing the activities in their own workbook allows students to take ownership of the poems they are studying and increases their familiarity and comfort with each poem. The workbook consists of a series of unnumbered pages, so that you can choose the order that best suits your class. The contents are as follows: 1. Front Cover – this page allows space for your students’ names/class details. 2. Assessment Objectives and Exam Information – this page gives a clear, concise explanation of exactly how the AOs are rewarded in the Mark Scheme, showing your students exactly what they need to do to gain marks in their specific exam paper. It also explains the format, layout and mark structure of the poetry section in their exam. 3. Poems and Poets – a full list of all of the poems in your selection. 4. Sound Effects and Visual Effects – this page features a superb examination of eight of the most common language techniques used by poets. Each section explains clearly what the technique is and gives a variety of quotations to illustrate this to the students. This is an excellent revision aid that students can use at any point in the year. 5. Your Sound Effects and Visual Effects – this page features a grid for students to fill in as the year progresses, allowing them to note and thus memorise examples of the various language techniques from the poems of their selection. 6. Poetry Profiles – these two pages are where the students will record essential information about each poem, thus building up a full set of their own notes as their study progresses. The first page prompts them to add information under the headings Poem, Poet, Context, Subject Matter, Themes and, most importantly, Links to Other Poems. The second page uses the headings Form, Sound Effects, Visual Imagery, Tone, Vital Quotes and Favourite Lines. The PDF includes one copy of these pages, so you will need to print one pair of pages for each poem on your selection. I'll be adding lots more GCSE poetry resources to my shop so please check back regularly! I hope this is useful for you and instructive for your students - as always, I'd love to hear any feedback you may have.

Poetry bundle

I have bundled together six resources which I think will be useful for purposes of poetry analysis at this time of year. The Lulu poem and the messages resources would be particularly apt to study around Mother's Day and will provoke discussion about gender roles. The resources can be used throughout the year equally well, however.
