Book Description

9 Sep 2008 041546708X 978-0415467087 1

A good poetry idea should help the children feel excited about writing and enable them to think of what to write - developing their imagination, creativity and writing skills.

Jumpstart! Poetry is about involving children as creative writers through writing poems. The book contains a bank of ideas that can be drawn upon when teaching poetry but also at other times to provide a source for creative writing that children relish. There are more than 100 quick warm-ups to fire the brain into a creative mood and to ‘jumpstart’ reading, writing and performing poetry in any key stage 1 or 2 classroom.

Practical, easy-to-do and vastly entertaining, this new ‘jumpstarts’ will appeal to busy teachers in any primary classroom.

Product Description

Review

'I am a fan of Pie Corbett and have not been disapponted with this excellent book. It is crammed full of writing and reading ideas for poetry learning with increased enjoyment and fun. I feel sure that using these activities will support the children's love for reading and writing of all genres. I also bought the Jumpstart storytelling and the Jumpstart creative writing books with this one and now I have a pocket full of teaching and learning diamonds to dip into for all sorts of learning objectives, but mostly to lead all the children to love language and stories. He suggests to achieve a poetry loving environment we begin staff meetings with a poem. There's a thought!' - Stella Sudds, review on amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry Jumpstart 9 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In my view this is the best of the Literacy range of Jumpstart books. So many activities packed into the book that are easily adapted to non-poetry activities. My year 6 class have produced some fantastic poetry using ideas from the book. A must buy for teachers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, packed with great ideas. 23 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant book, love it - so many great ideas for activities, either as part of a lesson or as starters. I love Pie Corbett's books in the Jumpstart series. It was an activity in this particular book that helped me secure my NQT year post (starting in September!), it really contains some lovely, effective and memorable activities.
