Performance Poetry!

Our children have been working hard at learning and making their very own Performance Poems. We looked at Bruce Lansky’s I’d Rather as an amusing start!

I’d Rather

I’d rather wash the dishes

I’d rather kiss a frog.

I’d rather get an F in maths

or run a ten-mile jog.

I’d rather do my homework.

I’d rather mow the lawn.

I’d rather take the garbage out.

I’d rather wake at dawn.

I’d rather dine on Brussels sprouts

or catch the chicken pox.

I’d rather do most anything

than clean the litter box.

The children used this as a guide to perform their version of the poem focusing on:

  • Volume
  • Pace
  • Pauses
  • Expression
  • Different voices
  • Background sounds
  • Body positions
