Poems

Here are some poems on the themes in No Kidding. Perhaps you could try writing your own poems on friends, falling out, sharing and arguments.

Co-operation
A see-saw only works
if you’ve got a friend
on the other end.
Tony Langham

                                                                       

Friendship
I’ve discovered a way to stay friends forever-
There’s really nothing to it.
I simply tell you what to do
And you do it!
Shel Silverstein

Name-calling
They called me frog-face with ears like a bat.
I said, “I’m not – I’m worse than that”.
They called me rat-nose with a tongue like a shoe.
I said, “Is that the best you can do?”
They call me mouse-eyes, skunk-breath, dog head.
I said, “I’m worse than all that you’ve said”
They said. “It’s no fun calling you a name”.
I called, “That’s a pity – I’m enjoying this game”.
Charles Thomson

Write about a special friend. What is it about them that makes them special?
If each child finds one good thing to say about each of their class mates you will have a class full of positive poems and each child will have 30 positive comments about themselves.
Or try the acrostic structure:

Forever
Reliable
In
Every way
Not
Demanding
Something

                                                              

Always
Rude
Getting
Under
My
Eyes
Never
Tries
Smiling

These are some we wrote (very) quickly. I’m sure your children could do better!
