POTENTIALLY POETICAL - Helps teachers and children to learn a little bit about the skill of writing poetry, teaching them a little bit about the various metres and with lots of examples and encouragement for them.
Visit my Poetry Corner where you can go on to WHO WANTS TO BE A POET? Here I give a lot of help and advice for you and your children with understanding metre and how it can bring your poems to life, with exercises for you and the children to do.
RHYTHM IN POETRY - Rhythm is the pulse of poetry, and rhyme is its echo.
PERFORMING POETRY: Poems should never be words that sit on the pages of a book. You need to hear them read aloud and you need to read them yourself and get children to read and perform them. Many of my poems are designed for just this.
