Mother's Day Poetry Lesson - Metaphors

In this PowerPoint presentation, our very own children’s poet in residence here at Goodeyedeers, David Horner, will talk your children through a clever way to write a poem for their mum for Mother’s Day. He calls it ‘My Mum’s A Ferrari’ and it explores the use of metaphors.

The presentation takes the children through the whole process step by step.

At the end they will have written a poem describing their mum in a series of ‘metaphoric couplets’ - it is bound to melt the hearts of the mums who receive them.

If you and your children enjoy this lesson then watch out for our other Mother’s Day poetry lessons - there will be four in total.
