Detective fun activity which promotes collaborative talk between pupils. It allows children to take time in reading and discussing the definitions of poetic terms matching definition to word. It recaps words like rhythm, alliteration, metaphor and is a great starter to any poetry lesson.
I have used this activity with year 5, 6 and 7 to recap poetic terms previously learnt or to stretch the more able. To start with, the teacher prints and laminated the 'find the poetic term'. Prior to the lesson each definition is placed around the classroom, school, corridor or playground.
At the start of the activity, the teacher gives the pupils the worksheet 'poetic definitions'. I find putting children into pairs for this is more successful. According to ability, the pupils can either write part of the definition or write down the number. Each definition has a number.
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
