Please Mrs Butler Comprehension Activity Pack

Please Mrs Butler Comprehension Activity Pack

Please Mrs Butler is a classic rhyming poem by Allan Ahlberg. It is set in the familiarity of the classroom and entails the conversation between one child and Mrs Butler, the teacher. The child is complaining about a boy called Derek Drew who is disrupting the learning and Mrs Butler gives some quite comical advice on how to deal with the problem.
These Please Mrs Butler poetry resources allow children to listen to and read, discuss and understand and learn and perform the poem. Children can use the poem as a basis for their own poems, writing about their own personal experiences.
There is a poem to display and/or read, comprehension questions about the poem to use to discuss to learn about its meaning and composition, missing words to learn and then perform the poem and an opportunity to write a poem, based on the format that Allan Ahlberg uses.
