Hello teacher friends,
Last term there was an afternoon when many of our teachers had to attend union meetings, so we had to double up some classes for the afternoon sessions. I planned a poetry lesson and made this student guide to go with it. Being term 4, it was a great way to revise some of the learning we had done during our water unit (Sharing the Planet - IB), as well as language features. I took it as a guided lesson for the first poem and as an independent for the second (9 yr olds). It went really well. You can grab your copy by clicking on the image below. We worked through the first booklet (water poems) but I have also added a blank booklet so that you can use it for any theme you are working on.
