This dragon poetry-writing frame will fire the imagination and creative zest of independent writers. The dramatic and humorous illustrations will spur ideas, as will the title - Watch out! - and open-scoped line starters:
Watch out for the … dragon!
He’s …, … and … .
His spikes are …, his … (wings/eyes/scales?) are …
and he’s as … as a … .
He goes … (galloping and roaring through our town at night?)
His favourite food is … (always a favourite line!).

Tried and tested with great success, especially after plenty of warm-up chat and acting out. Dragons can be any type a young writer likes, from wild and scary to kind and brave, or just downright bonkers.
