Bring to your classroom some pictures of the things mentioned in my poem and their homes, and perhaps some others too.  Who can find the most?    Josie                                            

Our World The Little Sea Maiden

Your home might be a caravan

     Or perhaps it is a tent.

Some people like to buy their home,

     Whilst others like to rent.


Your home could be a hay filled barn

     Or perhaps the salty sea.

You might prefer a cool dark cave,

     Or a nest high in a tree.


Your home could be beneath the soil,

     Or underneath a stone.

Some share their homes with families;

     Some like to live alone.


Who carry homes upon their backs?

      Who sleep high in the trees?

Now write a list of lots more homes

     To add to all of these.
