HANDS - Writing Activity/Idea for KS1

My Hand

It claps
It waves
It misbehaves

It clicks
It flicks
It plays with sticks

It holds
It scolds
My clothes it folds

It cares
It shares
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!!!
