Click here for today’s teaching resources and lesson instructions – tongue twisters

Today you will be readings and writing poetry about making faces and feelings.

Poetry is a wonderful way to express your feelings. Today children will learn how to write different poems and express their feelings and ideas in different ways.

The first job is to read Make a face and then to write it as a new poem. How many different faces can you make? How does each of these faces make you feel?

Making Faces – kids emotions activity

When you have made different faces – either on your own face, or on a page – or even better, both, use them to make a poem. Write about the different faces. Can you make them into a funny poem?

What do you think of the moody face poem? Which one do you prefer and why?

Camilla Caterpillar kept a caterpillar killer-cat.
A caterpillar killer categorically she kept.
But alas the caterpillar killer-cat attacked Camilla
As Camilla Caterpillar catastrophically slept.
