We have some spooktacular writing resources available in the Goodeyedeers Shop. Each one packed with ideas to help you have a great lesson with your children.
Writing Spine-Chilling Haiku Poems
This PowerPoint lesson starts by explaining what a Haiku poem is and then has the children recognising and counting syllables.
They then have a chance to complete some half-finished Haiku. This can be done as a whole class, in pairs or groups or individually.
Finally, the children are given some picture prompts to help get them started on writing their own spine-chilling Halloween Haiku.
Writing Spooky Cinquain Poems
In this PowerPoint lesson, the children are introduced to cinquain poetry and how it is made up of five unrhymed lines and a syllable count 2-4-6-8-2.
The lesson takes them through some half-finished examples which the children work together to finish before going off and writing some of their own.
Writing Blood-Curdling Kennings Poetry
In this PowerPoint lesson, the children find out what a Kenning is and its origins in Anglo-Saxon times.
They are then shown how to write some modern Halloween Kennings which they then put into couplets to create their blood-curdling Halloween poems.
Happy Halloween from Mike and David at Goodeyedeers.
