Show your children how to write some spooky Halloween cinquain poems.

Ideal for children in KS2.

This PowerPoint lesson takes you through the whole process. It starts by explaining that a cinquain poem is made up of five lines and comprises exactly 22 syllables. It then has the children recognising and counting syllables.

After seeing an example of a completed cinquain the children then have a chance to complete some half-finished cinquain. This can be done as a whole class, in pairs or groups or individually.

Finally, the children are given some picture prompts to help get them started on writing their own scary Halloween cinquain poems.

The Teachers’ Notes are written in the form of a script explaining what is contained in each slide of the PowerPoint and giving suggestions for you to explore with the children.
