This book is a companion volume to the popular Teaching Poetry with 7 – 12 year olds. It includes a broad range of exciting and enjoyable poems that can be used to develop enthusiasm for poetry, reading and writing. For ease of use each poem is specifically linked to both a ‘Key Objective’ and accompanying ‘Teachers’ Notes.
All the poems in this book have been used successfully in school workshops with 4 – 8 year olds. Most are written by Alan Peat, but the collection also includes poems by Wes Magee and Andrew Taylor. A broad range of poetry styles is included, and related ‘language play’ activities are discussed.
