Guided Reading Year 3 (White level) rhyming words activity

Guided Reading Year 3 (White level) rhyming words activity

Once the children have read the book and hopefully realised that the text rhymes I ask them to choose a verse each and practise it until it can be performed to a high standard (NC expectation). During the guided reading session the teacher can discuss rhyming words in general, then look at the ones in the book - be careful not to duplicate the ones on the worksheet! Following that, the children in the guided reading group could read the poem to the rest of the class and leave the second couplet out and see if the other children can add a word that rhymes. It's great fun and can help to assess those that understand rhyming and those that can add words that match the context of the story. Have fun!

Poetry from other Cultures Unit of Work

Poetry from other Cultures Unit of Work

This unit of work takes pupils through 'White Comedy', 'I too Sing, America,' 'Blessing' and 'Island Man.' It helps pupils to analyse each poem and guides them through a comparison. It has bits and pieces taken from others' resources that I have adapted, as well as my own work. I have successfully taught this to high ability year 8 and low ability year 9. For differentiation, I include a scaffolded essay plan, which has helped some of my SEN/EAL pupils. Parts of this are inspired by Phil Beadle's amazing work on 'Island Man' and 'Blessing' (Teachers TV). I really enjoy teaching this unit of work, I hope that others find it useful.

Creative Writing inspired by WW1 Poetry - Unit of Work

Creative Writing inspired by WW1 Poetry - Unit of Work

This scheme of work guides pupils through 'Exposure,' 'Dulce et Decorum Est,' and 'Who's for the Game?' and then uses this context to inspire a piece of creative writing about going over the top in the trenches. The presentation takes pupils through the writing paragraph by paragraph and suggests techniques they can use at each stage. I used it with mid/low ability year 9 pupils. There are bits and pieces taken from others' resources here as well as my own work.
