CHILDREN'S POEM: 

THE NAMES FOR HOMES

By Josie Whitehead

Homes

Your home might be a caravan

     Or perhaps it is a tent.

Some people like to buy their home,

    Whilst others like to rent.

 

Your home could be a hay filled barn

     Or perhaps the salty sea.

You might prefer a cool, dark cave,

    Or a nest high in a tree.

 

Your home could be beneath the soil,

     Or underneath a stone.

Some share their homes with families;

     Some like to live alone.

 

Who carry homes upon their backs?

     Who sleep high in the trees?

Now write a list of lots more homes

      To add to all of these.

Exercise:      Get into small groups:  Write down the name of an animal, insect, fish, bird or human.  Then write down the correct name of their home.  

Then you can have a quiz in your class:  You can either call out the name of the home or of the animal, insect etc who lives in it - - - and see who gets the correct answer.

Sometimes it seems that my study is my home when I'm typing a new poem for you.  Josie
