Balloon with Teacher notes

Poem by James Aitchison

Teacher Notes by Jeanie Axton

I think students would find shape poems a lot of fun to write. James has given us an excellent example of a balloon shape poem. Students could copy this example and write their own words.

Other examples of simple shapes to start with are:

  • Kite
  • Footy oval
  • The outline of a hand
  • Star
  • Flower
  • Moon

Students in groups could make giant shape poems on coloured card to be displayed.

Another opportunity here is to build on IT skills and get the students to learn how to make shape poems digitally in different programs.

Have fun with shape poems.
