T'was the Night Before Christmas poetry writing
This powerpoint, writing planner and rhyming reference sheet is aimed at pupils working in pairs or small groups to create a poem in the style of 'T'was the Night Before Christmas'. It discusses how to break the poem down into a short 5-verse poem, with different things to mention in each verse. It also discusses the presence of rhyme in the poem and suggests some words to use. The use of rhyme throughout is quite challenging, hence why I believe this would be more enjoyable for groups working co-operatively. I hope this proves useful. Happy Christmas.
