  • 1. Year 3 Poetry Ideas By Joanne Villis http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/ Activities can be applied to different year levels!
  • 2. Australian Curriculum • CONTENT DESCRIPTORS Discuss the nature and effects of some language devices used to enhance meaning and shape the reader’s reaction, including rhythm and onomatopoeia in poetry and prose • CONTENT ELABORATIONS identifying the effect of imagery in texts, for example the use of imagery related to nature in haiku poems exploring how rhythm, onomatopoeia and alliteration give momentum to poetry and prose read aloud, and enhance enjoyment
  • 3. Engage • Invite students to create a brainstorming wall of what they know about poetry (I use the whiteboard at the front of the room). Every day students are invited to read what other people have written and add something new. Note, students can’t write what someone else has already written. • Introduce the concept of free verse poetry, it is poetry that doesn’t have any rules about structure. The purpose of the free verse is to express ones’ feelings, to entertain, to create an image in the readers head of particular concept.
  • 4. Engage • Introduce the 6 Thinking Hats poetry evaluation chart. Read the poem Marbles to students. Ask students to use the hat to evaluate the poem. Repeat this process for the poem, Mountain Lions.
  • 5. Engage • Poetry Magnets Download the free iPad app and allow students to drag and drop work to create free verse poems. The initial focus is on free expression, no rules or techniques needed. https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/poetry- magnets/id369944301?mt=8
  • 6. Explore • On the smart board brainstorm words that are associated with a ‘cold winter’s morning’. Then give students the task card to the right. Once students have written their very long sentence choose 2 or 3 students to write their very long sentence on the smart board. Model how a very long sentence can be used to create shorter lines for a free verse poem. Invite students to write their own free verse poem.
  • 7. Explore • Invite students to draw a scary forest. Then as a class, brainstorm words associated with a scary forest. Encourage students to focus on sounds as well as what they might see. Ask students to write a very long sentence about a scary forest and then write their own free verse poem. See task card to the right.
  • 8. Explore • Repeat the 6 Hat poem evaluation using the poem below. Then ask students to picture their own fence, describe their fence to their partner before writing a poem about a fence.
  • 9. Explore • Revisit the purpose of concept maps (ie to help us sort our ideas). Ask a student to randomly select a topic (ie dogs). Write dogs in the middle of the board. Then use the sub headings; looks like, smells like, feels like, sounds like and tastes like. Instead of using round bubbles for sub headings use a hand. This will encourage students to think of 5 words associated with each topic. • Let students know that the following day they are going to create their own concept map about a topic of their choice. Their concept map will then help them to write a free verse poem based on the topic they have chosen.
  • 10. Explore • Provide each student with a sheet of white construction paper. Have the students trace their hands on the construction paper with their fingers wide apart. Ask students to think of something special that their hands do such as wave “hello” in friendship, paint a beautiful picture, help them to climb a tree or play a sport, etc. • Next, have each student write a poem about his or her hand around the inside edges of the hand outline. Cut out the hand shapes. Display the hand poems along a classroom
  • 11. Explore Inside/outside poems: • Read the poem and discuss how a different sense is introduced on each line. Invite students to write an inside and an outside poem.
  • 12. Elaborate • Onomatopoeia is a word used to describe words which describe sounds. For example, words used to describe water might include: • bloop • splash • spray • sprinkle • squirt • drip • Drizzle
  • 13. Elaborate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1b5kCvVBo8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAYGa3Lvlq0
  • 14. Elaborate Popcorn Onomatopoeia Poem 1. Listen to popcorn pop in the microwave 2. Write a list of the sounds you can hear 3. Share you word lists with the class 4. Imagine you are a popcorn kernel in the bag 5. Start writing your poem on your page and create the path of your popcorn kernel as you write your poem
  • 15. Elaborate PE Onomatopoeia poem Before students go to a PE (Physical Education Lesson) as them to think about the sounds that they hear during the lesson. After the lesson ask students to write a poem about PE, focusing on the sounds they hear.
  • 16. Elaborate Alliteration Alliteration is the repetition of the same sounds (usually consonants). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3GbMgs7NLI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CMHrDDWado
  • 17. Elaborate Read Dr Seus's ABC then: Ask students to choose a letter and then create a table with three columns. Ask students to label the first column nouns, the second verbs an the third adjectives. Ask students to brainstorm as many words as they can for each column. Then ask students to put the words together to create a poem which uses the alliteration technique.
  • 18. Elaborate Rhyme: Not all poetry has to rhyme but rhyming can add enjoyment to reading poetry. There are many rhyming patterns that work well but students can make up their own patterns. Traditionally, the last word of line 2 and 4 and then 5 and 6 work well. Other rhyming patterns include A B A B or AA and BB. Example; The Elephant Down south where the bananas grow An ant stood on an elephant's toe The elephant said with tears in his eyes 'Why don't you pick on someone your own size?
  • 19. Elaborate Ask students to complete the following: 1) Choose a topic 2) Brainstorm a list of words associated with the topic 3) Next to each word think of as many rhyming words as you can 4) Choose a rhyming pattern (ie AABB or ABAB) 5) Write a poem using rhyme
