Here's a quick and easy Christmas lesson. It was suggested to me by a teacher in London, Mike Harrison. It's a short poem looking at Christmas from a new angle - that of Turkeys. Here's a link to the poem on the BBC website. The poem is called Talking Turkeys. (By the way, did you know that it's traditional to eat turkeys for lunch at Christmas in the UK?) You can read the poem there and hear the poet, Ben Zephariah, reading his poem too.
Or you can click on the link below and watch him perform it live.
Or here's another version that Mike showed me, which is great fun as well. You can hear the poem and read it, line by line at the same time. Let me know which you like best!
OK, so that's the last class for this year. Hope you enjoy it! Please let me know what you think of it in the comments.
I hope you all have a great holiday, a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year. See you back on the blog in 2011!
