In this PowerPoint lesson, the children are shown how to create their own diamante poems making use of compound nouns.
A diamante is an unrhymed seven-line poem. The beginning and ending lines are the shortest, while the lines in the middle are longer, giving diamante poems a diamond shape. ‘Diamante’ is the Italian word for diamond.
It was created by an American poet named Iris McClellan Tiedt in 1969.
In this lesson, we adapt the more traditional format of the poem to give the children practise in using compound nouns, verbs adjectives and adverbs.
The teachers’ notes that go with this resource have more background information about the diamante poetic form; information on how the PowerPoint lesson is set out and a grid (with instructions) for the children to use when creating their diamante poems.
