This week’s homework is creative and links to the literacy learning that we have been doing in class. It is due in on Wednesday 12 January 2011.
I can write a kenning poem.
A kenning poem describes something without giving its name away. It uses verbs ending in ‘er’.
Here is an example similar to the ones we looked at in class:
Think of your own animal. Now write a kenning poem about your animal. Remember to think of all the verbs (doing words) that your animal does and then add ‘er’ to the end of them.
Adjectives/ Adverbs group: Try to use your ambitious vocabulary. Can you think of even better words eg. eater could also be scoffer or gobbler. (Remember your hyphens too!)
