A Seaside Holiday
A poem on the theme of holidays. Can be used as a reading and punctuation exercise or may be extended to include a discussion around traditional British holidays, ways to spend leisure time or enjoying new experiences by using different senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch).
Super for many levels and situations - includes suggested questions and discussion prompts.
After struggling to find poems at an appropriate level, Jean wrote this (and several others that are equally good/useful!) for a shared reading group where poems are read aloud and used to prompt discussion of common ESOL topics such as shopping, holidays and jobs.
