We want as many students around the world to write a rhyming couplet about their own favourite animal that they have created. It is very easy for your students to take part in this, just follow these steps:

  1. Send the Great Big Poem Lesson to your students. This video will show you how to send lessons.
  2. They complete it by writing a rhyming couplet and drawing a picture to illustrate it.
  3. Download the lesson results into a spreadsheet. This video will show you how to download lesson results.
  4. Email the spreadsheet to [email protected] before the end of October 2018.

All of the rhyming couplets that we receive can be added to our poem and published at the end of October 2018.

We can’t wait to read your rhymes and create our amazing poem!
