As I spoke about in my 2nd Year placement post, my 1st poetry writing lesson was creating Acrostic Poems using the students names.
The next poetry lesson was about rhyming. To make this a bit easier on the students we focused our rhyming poems on Animals. So as a group I read the students a rhyming poem. After the poem as a group we came up with our own rhyming poem on the whiteboard.
Some of the students loved this type of poem and their responses were very creative.
Once again sorry for the poor quality pictures but as I mentioned in the Acrostic Poem post, I was taking these quickly off my iPad. If you would like me to type some of the students work up let me know in the comments and I can get around to that for you. Also some of the work may be a bit difficult to read. Please remember that these students are only 6-8 years old. I was very proud of all of their work in this lesson. They came up with some really creative poetry.
