HANDS - Writing Activity/Idea for KS1
It plays with sticks
My clothes it folds
It tickles bears!!
Start off by performing this poem, using actions suggested by the children.
Next, have a discussion: what are some of the different things that hands can do? Jot down some ideas on the board. Each child then goes to their table, and has a go at writing down some of the things they like doing with their hands (reading books, hugging teddies, eating crisps, etc). Each child then has a go at drawing an outline of their hand, and copying their writing so that it follows the outline. They end up with a lovely shape poem!!!
