Playing With Poetry - Writing Diamante Poems
GoodeyedeersGoodeyedeers

Playing With Poetry - Writing Diamante Poems

(0)
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.

SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 2

SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 2

(0)
In this entertaining and creative game players meet – or possibly re-meet - Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far off planet of SPaG. The game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands for Y2 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The PowerPoint presentation leads the children, step by step, through the game. It also includes an embedded video introducing the children to Hetti. The Teachers’ Notes give more instructions for playing the game and suggested follow up activities. The precise elements the game covers are: subordination expanded noun phrases the progressive form of verbs commas to separate items in a list apostrophes to mark letters missing in spelling. The game also revisits much of the punctuation demands and the terminology introduced in Y1. It can be played more than once, either by small groups of 5 or more, or by a whole class. The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how this activity is designed to work. Money raised from the sale of this resource will be going to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

‘Times Tables Twisters’ is a great resource that gives you differentiated activities that can be used to combine the learning of times tables with the writing of tongue twisters. It can be delivered as a class lesson or used by individual children on their iPads. The children meet different characters who, like many children, were finding the learning of times tables difficult, until they came up with this unique way of remembering them. Each PowerPoint lesson describes, in detail, how the 6, 7 and 9 times tables can be used to create some interesting tongue twisters. This resource contains: - Three PowerPoint presentation lessons one for each of the times tables – 6x, 7x and 9x. - A PDF containing a set of differentiated grids that the children can use to help them create their own times table tongue twisters. - An Excel sheet with the same set of differentiated grids on that can be used by children with their own laptops and/or iPads. - A set of teachers’ notes with follow up ideas. As well as having fun with words the children are creating their own mnemonics to help them remember their tables.
