An inspiring and yet simple poem by Daphne Lister. The poem has some rhyming words that the children will soon grasp and some spelling patterns that can lead to discussions about alternative ways of spelling phonemes.
Shared learning and teaching
- Look at the poster together. Can the children tell you what sort of text this is? What are the features of a poem? What do they think the poem is going to be about? Did they think of kites in the sky when they were outside?
- Cover the rhyming words with sticky notes and read through the text with the children. Can they guess what the rhyming words are?
- Remove the sticky notes and compare the children’s ideas with those of the poet.
- Make a list of the rhyming words. What do the children notice about the spelling patterns in them?
- Discuss in pairs what the children would see if they were a kite.
