I've been out into the Wimmera/ Mallee teaching poetry for a week and writing new poems.
To be ready to teach from Prep to year 12 took several weeks to prepare new techniques and organise.
But it is always a privilege to help children to write! And now I have written new techniques to use in other teaching settings as well.
But here's a link to look at http://christchurchkids.wordpress.com/author/zackids/ I will be
author of the month and blog about all things writing as they affect me...
Walker books has a blog post about 'Guinea Pig Town and other animal poems' here.
Meanwhile I am writing for a new collection of poems- more about that later.
Happy reading and writing.
