    Maggie and milly Maggie and milly Presentation Transcript

    • Your Challenge
      • You are going to listen to a poem.
      • You are going to hear it once and once only.
      • After that, without taking any notes - you are going to reproduce a ‘word perfect’ – or almost word perfect - text (orally or written)
    • Strategy
      • What might help you to remember the poem?
    • Clues
      • To help we’ve given you two clues:
      • A picture associated with the poem
      • And
      • The title of the poem.
    • The title of the poem is: ‘ maggie and milly and molly and may’
    • Prediction
      • What predictions can you make from the title?
      • What links, if any, do you make with the picture? Why?
      • What do you predict the text is about?
      • Can you predict words or phrases in the text?
      • Pupils work in pairs and feedback.
      • Whole class Listen once to text – listen in silence; do not take notes!
      • Solo reconstruction (1 mins max) Record on sheet
      • Pairs reconstruction (2 minutes) annotate record sheet
      • 5s final draft (5 mins) Work in groups to see how much you can recall
      • Whole class (5 mins) Work as a whole class to see how much you can recall. Take contributions from all.
      • Now check how close your recall is with the original poem.
    • maggie and milly and molly and may
      • maggie and milly and molly and may
      • went down to the beach (to play one day)
      • and maggie discovered a shell that sang
      • so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
      • milly befriended a stranded star
      • whose rays five languid fingers were;and
      • molly was chased by a horrible thing
      • which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
      • may came home with a smooth round stone
      • as small as a world and as large as alone.
      • For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
      • it's always ourselves we find in the sea
      • by E. E. Cummings
    • For whatever we lose (like a you and a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea How does the final couplet change the way we read – understand – this poem?
