Writing Ideas for Father's Day

4 Resources
In this bundle of Powerpoint presentations, the well known children’s poet, David Horner, will talk your children through some great ideas for writing four different poems for their dads on Father’s Day. 1. The first idea is called ‘The Best Dad In The World’ and it explores the use of metaphors. 2. The next one is a ‘Recipe Poem’. 3. The third idea involves playing a word association game to get ideas for a poem. 4. The final idea for a poem for Father’s Day, David calls ‘The Magic Box’ and is based on the poem ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright. The poems the children write are bound to melt the hearts of the dads who receive them. All the money raised from the sale of our resources is donated to a local northwest charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
