Walking Through the Woods
A descriptive poem on the theme of Nature. Can be used as a reading and pronunciation exercise or may be extended to include a discussion about the seasons, local environments, the life cycle of animals and plants, global warming or the benefits of outdoor exercise.
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, nature, holidays and jobs.
