A ‘Notes for Teachers’ section accompanies each poem and includes both suggestions for using the poem with either a whole class or a group, and extension activities.
All of the poems in the pack have been used on school workshops with 7-12 year old children – most are written by Alan Peat, but the collection also includes poems by Colin McNaughton and Michael Rosen.
All poetry styles are covered, including rhyming and non-rhyming, haiku, expanding-contracting poems, shape poems, rap and free verse.
Alan Peat also provides five writing frames to help children to structure their responses to poems effectively.
