Quick Overview

Developing Literacy: Poetry is a series of three photocopiable activity books for primary school teachers. Each book provides a range of poetry activities that support the teaching of reading and writing skills at text, sentence and word levels.

The activities in Developing Literacy Upper Primary encourage children to:
Develop their enjoyment of different kinds of poems, including classic poems, modern poetry, poems from different cultures and times and in different forms, such as sonnet, rap, elegy, ballad and concrete poem
Develop their skills in analysing poetry
Compare the styles of different poets (past and present) and the ways in which different poets write about the same themes
Learn to recognise the influences of culture and experience on poets and to write about their own experiences
Experiment with the effects created by words in different combinations
Enjoy, investigate and create humour through word-play, ambiguity, rhyme and play on meanings
Explore the quality of sounds produced by rhythm and different forms of rhyme and assonance
Explore the use of similes, comparisons, metaphors and figurative language
Use poems they have read as models for their own writing.
