Cloud Poetry
Take students outside to observe clouds and write some of their observations - not just what they saw, but describing the shapes e.g. a scary dog, a fluffy cat, a big car etc. This PowerPoint is an additional resource and is good for children that struggle as some photos are really clear and obvious. If you have an interactive whiteboard you can draw over the pictures to make the clouds into the shapes that the children can see. Students then write a whole class poetry book "I saw in the clouds..."Could also be used as an extension in a science weather unit/lesson.
