Busy busy busy! Back from my mini holiday and I have events on every day so tomorrow I will have a bunch of catchup blogs for you!
This is a BIG GINORMOUS LARGE GLORIOUS call out to all the young poets of New Zealand (up to year 8!).
It is the holidays next week so think of Poetry Box has a place you can have holiday adventures.
Everyday I will post a mini challenge and every day I would love to post your poems or letters.
Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org Include your name, age, school year and name of school.
It makes a difference when parents know that this is a good site for children to use so thanks to all the schools who are passing my details on.
Next term I hope to get flyers printed off so I can send them to schools who want them (any sponsorship of this gratefully received and acknowledged!).
I have lots of holiday poems I want to write. My advice: Keep your ears flapping and your eyes open wide and you will spot ideas for poems when you are on holiday (as I told Blockhouse Bay Primary School yesterday!).
Here are some cool signs I saw on holiday (some of them might go into a poem I write so watch this space!):
I saw this one when I was in the toilet in the dark in a cafe because I couldn’t find the light switch and then I couldn’t open the door! Then when I found the switch I saw this sign on the door.
