Performing Poetry

November 12, 2010

This week we have been reading lots of different poems and discussing the poems that we like. We chose a poem to perform and had a go at reading it with expression and changes in our voices.

In the comments:

How are the children changing their voices to make their performances expressive?

What other things are they doing to make it interesting?


  1. You have choosen some really unusual poems 4OQ. I liked the way you made them come alive with your reading!

  2. Well done 4OQ – some really good reading. Putting as much expression into your voices as you can really makes the listener want to hear more. Great stuff!

  3. What a great selection of poems. I hadn’t heard most of those poems before, but I enjoyed them all. Especially because you read them with such great expression.

  4. You really put a lot of passion into your reading and the poems were made more interesting by using different expression. I would really love to hear some more. Well done!

  5. I am currently compiling a list of the Top 100 Classroom Blogs, and I would like to include your site on my list. I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions about you and your blog so I can include more information in my article (I couldn’t find your contact information) Please e-mail me (alexisbrett@gmail.com) and include the title of your blog in the e-mail, thanks!
