A good poetry idea should help the children feel excited about writing and enable them to think of what to write - developing their imagination, creativity and writing skills.

Jumpstart! Poetry is about involving children as creative writers through writing poems. The book contains a bank of ideas that can be drawn upon when teaching poetry but also at other times to provide a source for creative writing that children relish. There are more than 100 quick warm-ups to fire the brain into a creative mood and to `jumpstart' reading, writing and performing poetry in any key stage 1 or 2 classroom.

Practical, easy-to-do and vastly entertaining, this new `jumpstarts' will appeal to busy teachers in any primary classroom.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I am a fan of Pie Corbett and have not been disapponted with this excellent book. It is crammed full of writing and reading ideas for poetry learning with increased enjoyment and fun. I feel sure that using these activities will support the children's love for reading and writing of all genres. I also bought the Jumpstart storytelling and the Jumpstart creative writing books with this one and now I have a pocket full of teaching and learning diamonds to dip into for all sorts of learning objectives, but mostly to lead all the children to love language and stories. He suggests to achieve a poetry loving environment we begin staff meetings with a poem. There's a thought!' - Stella Sudds, review on amazon
