KS1 Halloween poetry unit - 3 lessons (monster theme)

KS1 Halloween poetry unit - 3 lessons (monster theme)

A fun, interactive 3 day poetry unit, perfect for using at Halloween. It has the theme of monsters and is suitable for using with KS1. The resource includes the curriculum objectives for both year 1 and 2, detailed lesson plans for 3 days and all the resources needed, including poem and writing templates. The first day is based on a poem by Clare Bevan about a kindly monster living under the bed. The children do a differentiated comprehension activity on the poem. The next two lessons then allow children to gather ideas before writing their own poem about a monster living in their bedroom, based on Clare Bevan's. Every lesson gives details about how to differentiate for different ability levels. A great unit for Halloween, but it could be easily adapted for any time of year. (4 differentiated comprehensions included in the price. Also available to purchase separately. Templates are included within the editable Microsoft Word plan and as a separate PDF document)
