By Alan Peat

This book includes a broad selection of exciting and enjoyable poems that can be used to develop enthusiasm for poetry reading and writing. For ease of use each poem is specifically linked to both a ‘Key Objective’ and accompanying ‘Teachers’ Notes’.

All of the poems in this book have been used successfully in school workshops with 4-8 year olds. Most are written by Alan Peat, but the collection also includes poems by Wes McGee and Andrew Taylor.

A broad range of poetry styles is included, and related ‘language play’ activities are discussed. This book is a companion volume to the popular Teaching Poetry with 7-12 year old’s.

Teachers from across the UK comment on how much children enjoy writing as a result of Alan Peat’s techniques and approaches being used in the classroom.
