I had a good activities morning with our residents. I typed out different poems for winter,in larger font, a mix of traditional, new and comical.
We had a 'read around' of each poem and a short commentary on each.
I then introduced the word SNOW and asked the residents to use the five senses to devise their own short poems or words based on the letters. I used a white board and marker to note down ideas.
It suited all abilities and was non threatening but challenging to residents who wanted to have a go.
They loved the poetry of Spike Milligan.
It was a brilliant morning and equally beneficial as I had an observation too today, with excellent feedback.
