Great job on last week's 6-Word Memoir Project! I am so very excited to see what each of you have come up with!
Here's mine- yes totally corny!!
We're now onto our Poetry Unit! Now while I enjoy all genres of writing, poetry seems to come the most natural to me. My mom says I must have written greeting cards in a past life!
To kick off the week, I have a PowerPoint Presentation on the different elements that make up poetry. Then we will be focusing on some well known poems and writing some of our own!
This unit specifically gives us an awesome opportunity- I enter our best poems into the Creative Communications National Poetry Contest where you can win the opportunity to get published and/or a scholarship! I've had my students enter this contest for the last 6 years and every year I've had students published! Let's go for lucky number 7!!!!
Conferences are also upon us- make sure you see me to sign up for a time slot!
I'm very excited to meet your families!
Check back here for weekly class updates!
