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.

Animal Poetry

An introductory unit for poetry that I currently use for Year 7. Our Year 7 groups are mixed ability and therefore there are clear opportunities for differentiation throughout through the use of challenge questions and support grids for writing P.E.E. paragraphs. Lessons usually adopt an unseen approach then leading on to a greater level of in depth analysis, employing some early GCSE skills such as unseen approaches, annotation and evaluation of texts and close analysis of language. The scheme consists of 83 slides and covers: 'The Eagle' - Tennyson 'Snake' -D.H. Lawrence 'Hyena' - Edwin Morgan 'The Jaguar' - Hughes 'I'm a Parrot' and 'Iguana Memory' - Nichols Students usually end up doing a poetry comparison between two poems. These are again differentiated in accordance with the needs of the group. The 'Hyena' lesson is adapted from another user.

Space Poetry Lesson Plan and PowerpointQuick View

Space Poetry Lesson Plan and Powerpoint

I created this plan and PPT for a job interview where I was asked to teach a year 5/6 class. I based the lesson on their two main topics which were Space and Poetry. I used the fantastic poem 'Six Ways to Look at the Moon' by Pie Corbett in this lesson - included. I also used another fab poem - included. Task was for the children to write their own version of Pie Corbett's poem. PPT easy to follow along while teaching. The 'Six-ways-to-look-at-ordering-a-poem' resource was used as an activity where I cut up the sentences and worked with a focus group to read, re-order the poem - this was great for discussion and for thinking about structure/ language in poem, etc.
