READING – Poetry Fun
Today we are going to read a little poetry. Poems are awesome ways to express yourself and explain how you are feeling.
- Your task today is to read a selection of poetry. We suggest around 15 minutes of reading time. We have some resources listed below;
a) At the End of the driveway – CLICK HERE
b) My teacher doesn’t get me! – CLICK HERE and for more poems by Judi Billcliff click here.
c) Visit Wordsorama to read some other poems – CLICK HERE
- Once you read at least three poems, select the best line or the best word from each poem. Write these on your worksheet or book.
This is a good way to look at the way the author has used words and phrases.
