Product Description

Review

As far as texts aimed at teachers are concerned, Sandy Brownjohn's To Rhyme or Not to Rhyme? still takes some beating for use in the Y7 classroom. (The Secondary English Magazine 2000-12-01)

Book Description

This is an omnibus edition of Brownjohn's three previous books on teaching children to write poetry. The book contains new chapters (including one on drafting) and poems.

Sandy Brownjohn has done us proud.
This book has inspired 100's of my poetry, and grammar, lessons. She uses poetry games, types of poems that are familiar and not so familiar - Haiku, Kennings and even obituaries! With notes on how to use them, and examples of childrens work throughout.
With 3 sections to take you through the year, although not cross referenced to the National Curriculum and Literacy Strategy, it is really easy to find what you need. I use it all the time.
Invaluable, if you only buy one book to help you teach poetry, this should be it.

A great book full of ideas of introducing poems in a range of different ways. I used it several times in my year 5 class and each time had a brilliant lesson where children produced some excellent poems in response.

Love this book and use it for my teaching 10 year olds regularly. Or I pick it up to just be inspired!
