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.
