During my summer break I did think about Poetry Box and wondered about posting an outline of what I would do during the year (helpful for teachers), but in the end I decided to be a little more spontaneous and follow the curves and surprises of the year.
However, I have decided to devote February to how poems sound as this very important to me. I will give you tips and challenges and post a competition or two.
In the meantime here is a classroom challenge. I did this last year, but it would be cool to do it again with new questions. I invite you as a class to design an interview with me. I will answer the questions and post it on my blog. I am happy to post a photo of you all if you have permission to do this.
The winning class with get a copy of my book Flamingo Bendalingo.
Deadline: February 14th
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name of school, name of teacher and year please.
