Maisie reads ‘Getting a Fish’ by Lachlan Boniface (7) published in A NZ Treasury of Poems for Children (Random House)

 

 

 

 

 

Paula reads some fish poems from Groovy Fish (The Cuba Press)

 

 

FISH ACTIVITIES

I have at least one copy of my book GROOVY FISH to give to one child who tries an activity. Will send when we come out of our bubbles!

 

You might like to try some of these:

Find a favourite fish poem and record yourself reading it (post with parental permission)

Collect fish words then use them to make a fishy picture, a shape poem, a concrete poem (that’s another word for a picture poem)

Write a fish poem based on something that happened to you

Write a fish poem  that invents a fish

Invent a fish and write a story or poem or comic strip about it

Draw or paint or collage the fish you invent

Make up a fish play for two voice ( or 4 or 5 or 6 or … over to YOU!)

Do a fish puppet show – make fish puppets out of old socks

Write a letter to a fish

Imagine you are a fish and write a poem or write a letter

Invent a fish dance

 

send to  paulajoygreen@gmail.com

please include your name age and name of school

don’t forget to put FISH challenge in subject line so I don’t miss it

don’t put your surname on drawings or paintings or collages (Poetry Box policy)

 

There is no deadline while we are living in our bubbles! Every Friday I will post some work by children. I will always answer your emails but not straightaway. If I haven’t replied after 3 or 4 days nudge me as I may have missed it.

 

(I will have pop-up mystery giveaways for the other activities every Friday when I post your work. See the list below!).

You can also try:

Listen to my unpublished very very very strange tail story and do some illustrations for it or invent your own strange tail!
