I thought I’d post about some great poetry resources for casual teachers. One thing I have come to hate over the years of my kids going to school is the endless number of acrostic poems they have to create, when there are so many other fabulous things they can have access to. Last week I read a Roald Dahl poem from Revolting Rhymes to a Year 3/4 class at the end of the day. It was a fantastic little activity that created lots of laughs, and most importantly, lots of discussion. So, I am now inspired to create a list of poetry resources that can be integrated into a unit of work, or that can just be used for one-offs for casual days.
