The prep students were lucky to meet awesome author Lee Fox today as part of our book week celebrations. She entertained the students with reading and performing some of her books and shared with them some great ways to create and plan stories and poetry that rhymes. It was really interesting to see her present one of her stories ’10 little Hermit crabs’ using a traditional Japanese Kamishibai (see www.kamishibai.com).
After the session the prep students had a go at writing their own rhyming poem, which was really challenging but very enjoyable. The students took on the challenge and edited and re-worked their poems until they sounded just right.
We hope you enjoy the short video which shares some of the Lee Fox presentation and some of the students poetry.
