Write with Ursula in March!

MARCH MARCHES


Ah the month of March! I love March. March was named after the ancient Roman god Mars. The ancient Romans lived a long time ago (about 2000 years at least) but we still remember them in lots of ways. One way is the names of the months – and also the planets.


Mars was the Roman god of soldiers. Another meaning of the word “march” is something soldiers do a lot. That’s right, walking together in a group, all stepping at the same time - QUICK MARCH!


You need to use RHYTHM when you march. A kind of a beat. I always think that marching is like making a poem or a song - with your legs.   In poems and songs you need RHYTHM and sometimes RHYMES as well, to keep the beat. So this MARCH let’s write a poem with a lot of rhythm and rhyme.


This is the beginning of a poem I’ve written:


HERE’S A CAT AND HERE’S A DOG

THERE’S A BEAR AND THERE’S A FROG

HERE’S A PIE AND HERE’S A PEACH
