Poetry Lesson Plans

March 19, 2013 Leave a comment

I’m so happy to have finally found free lesson plans for poetry. we’ve borrowed Driscoll’s poetry book from TTDI library and another better one (title of book!) from MBPJ lib, but both have missing CDs!

Anyway, here’s the link! : Poetryarchive Lesson Plans

I’m so happy as there are also accompanying audio files, and lesson plans for KS1-KS5 (British Curicullum), again I prefer British spelling, so this is great for us!

I seem to remember Montessori Print Shop selling lessons on different types of poetry too.

Edit: We use First Language Lessons and a fellow mummy has put together the poems in fll as printables! You can easily use these even if one does not use FLL. Get the printables from homeschoolcreations

Edit 2: Here’s another free printable on cinquain.

Also some more potential freebies on teaching poetry/language generally

Edit3: Looks like this is even more comprehensive than poetryarchive but not sure quality wise

Cool! If you don’t like First Language Lesson’s approach to grammar, at least the poetry collections might be useful and suitable according to your child’s grade level. So the link above is to printables of the poems in FLL, all decorated, really cool mama! 🙂 I should thank her.

The Caterpillar

Brown and furry
Caterpillar in a hurry;

Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk.

May no toad spy you,
May the little birds pass by you;

Spin and die,
To live again a butterfly.

-Christina G. Rossetti.

The Crocodile
by Lewis Carroll

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!
