This Talk for Writing unit is all about the Lock down. There are lots of different types of poems in this unit for you to enjoy. I have planned the activities over 2 weeks but it may take longer.
I have broken the activities down but you may choose to organise it differently.
Day 1: Listen to poems and sort words
Day 2: Word pictures - using similes
Day 3: What are you? Using metaphors
Day 4: Out of the window - eye spy, I didn't know I'd miss.... and Wishes
Day 5: A quick warm up before reading on.
Day 6: Lock down poem and what do the words mean?
Day 7: What words and ideas do you remember?
Day 8: What did the poem make you think about?
Day 9: Activity - spot the alliteration/Let's get creative! The personification game.
Day 10: Let's innovate! Your turn!
