Based on Jack Prelutsky’s poem, “The Vampire”, this offers two ways of working with the poem. First, there are 12 comprehension questions which could be used for cover or as a homework - or could be used to structure a guided reading session. Alternatively, there are some ideas as to how the poem could be used as the basis for a drama lesson. The drama lesson requires only space. There is no requirement for props, costumes, lighting or a stage - although obviously these elements could be used to enhance the experience if they’re available.
