These five humorous poems are all on the same underwater theme but are different in style and form. They include limericks, a tongue-twister, word play and both rhyming and non-rhyming forms. The collection is suitable for work on Year 1 Poetry Planning Unit 3 – Poems on a theme and Year 2 Poetry Planning Unit 3 – Silly stuff (humorous poems and poems featuring language play).
These teachers’ notes accompany the PRINT ONLY guided reading leaflet in Literacy Time PLUS for Ages 5 to 7, January 2009.
- Talk to the children about funny poems they have read and enjoyed or a poem you have read together.
- Look at the pictures in the leaflet and read the titles of the poems. What is the leaflet about? Which poem do they think they will like best?
