This is the first in a two-part resource by Kevin McCann providing writing frames for different kinds of conversation poems. This month we offer you two frames: ‘Who ate the pie?’ based on the traditional rhyme ‘Who Killed Cock Robin’, and ‘The Story Book’, a fantasy based around a magic book. Both use the Question and Answer structure.
The May issue of Literacy Time PLUS Ages 9 to 11 features three more inspirational poetry frames. Click here to read more.
Shared learning and teaching
Before using Level 1
- Level 1 uses full-rhyme. Emphasise the importance of sense as well as sound in rhyming poetry.
- Play ‘Rhymers’ – write a word on the board, then give the class five minutes to list as many full rhymes as they can. Alternatively, work in teams. Give each team a word and a time limit.
