It;s Teacher Tuesday, but with the end of the school year rapidly approaching, I thought I might offer something different this week. Instead of offering teaching activities for one of my books,I am offering a quick poetry writing idea.
Write a Christmas Tree Poem
Challenge your students to write a poem in the shape of a Christmas tree, like this one here:
For older students they can use my attempt as a mentor text. For younger students you might provide a printed worksheet with a tree outline and lines drawn. Older children can be challenged to write other Christmas shape poems – for example, in the shape of baubles, stockings or presents.
This is the last Teacher Tuesday post for this year, but it will return in January in time for the new school year. In the meantime, if you missed earlier posts, you can still find suggestions for each of the following books by clicking on the titles:
and Sage Cookson.
Thanks for visiting, and if there is a topic you’d like covered in Teacher Tuesday during 2018, let me know.
